Acupuncture is a powerful medicine for the modern world. It’s not some passing trend or new-age voodoo, or magic - psst, our clients might disagree on the magic part. Their symptoms do seem to magically disappear!
Acupuncture is a time-tested, holistic medicine that heals your body, mind, and spirit. It addresses underlying imbalances and brings you back into alignment to heal.
It is helpful for several conditions like chronic pain, allergies, weight loss, neuropathy, anxiety, diabetes, gut issues, infertility, low back pain, women’s health, migraines, and so much more.
We usually see a shift with symptoms anywhere from one week to a month when you follow your prescribed treatment plan.
After completing an initial treatment series, there’s a natural transition into a maintenance, preventive health program to maintain progress.
Your body is wise.
Have you had a pesky knot or muscle spasm that won’t go away? You jump or screech at the slight touch, causing painful sensations elsewhere in the body.
Dry needling is acupuncture, with a modern twist. We use it when you need a little extra jolt to release those deep, achy, and stubborn trigger points and myofascial pains. This technique involves inserting, thin acupuncture needles in trigger points for quick-release of the musculature, often resulting in complete absence of pain - even ones you’ve had present for years. Trigger point therapy works best for acute and chronic pain conditions: chronic body pain, hip and gluteal pain, back and neck pain.
MD AcuMed Integrative Health is one of the few clinics in the Greater Washington DC area with extensive, expert training in both Dry Needling and Orthopedic Acupuncture.
