Acupuncture involves the strategic placement of thin needles at select points along the body, which has been observed to stimulate healing processes that were first witnessed by practitioners in ancient China.
The ancient practice of acupuncture has been applauded for solving muscular and nervous disorders when nothing else worked, and can help with a surprising number of issues including chronic pain and even allergies.
Many people have applauded the effects of acupuncture for relieving the psychosomatic side of disorders even if they don't believe in the validity of the scientific techniques. When you see these results replicated over and over, it becomes a scientific phenomenon even if it is an alternative form of medicine.
Despite the inability of scientists to explain the phenomenon, it is clear to those who have acupuncture performed that it improves their sense of well-being, alleviates pain symptoms, improves their quality of sleep, and resolves indigestion issues, among other things.
There was a time when insurance coverage for acupuncture and other alternative medicines was non-existent. This made it difficult for chiropractic patients to afford the benefits of acupuncture and chiropractic care together, but not any more! We can proudly accept several forms of insurance, including: Aetna, Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Cigna, Cofinity, Humana, Medicare, Rocky Mountain Health Plan, UMR, and United Health Care.
