Acupuncture's goal is to restore normalcy to the body's energy balance by utilizing a combination of Acupoints located on the twelve meridians. This is accomplished by a variety of means, the needle is just one.
The number of treatments vary with different conditions and individuals. Chronic problems generally require more treatment than acute ones. Some patients notice an immediate improvement after the first treatment, whereas others many not notice any effect until the seventh or eighth visit. It's been shown that a certain percentage of patients receive maximum benefit up to three months following a course of therapy.
Acupuncture textbooks list well over one hundred different conditions that respond well to Acupuncture. The World Health Organization, working in close harmony with the International Acupuncture training center of the Shanghai College of Traditional Chinese Medicine, has indicated Acupuncture is effective in the following conditions:
Acute and chronic pain relief, migraine, tension cluster and sinus headaches, trigeminal neuralgia, bladder dysfunction, bed wetting, cervical (neck) pain, and mid-back pain, low shoulder, tennis elbow, post-operative pain relief, gastric problems, asthma, allergies, skin conditions, hemorrhoids, abnormal blood pressure, fatigue, anxiety, neurologic syndrome, various eye problems, etc., etc.
This is only a partial list of the numerous conditions Acupuncture has been credited with helping.
We also utilize ear acupuncture, also known as Auriculotherapy, utilizing small, semi-permanent ASP needles.
ASP Ear Stapling has been shown to have effects that suppress hunger, which results in a decreased appetite and a resultant weight loss.
ASP Ear Stapling is the new twist to an old method. Unlike staples which can create an infection if left in too long or applied by an inexperienced individual, ASP needles are designed to stay in place 3 days to 2 weeks, gradually falling out on their own. Patients are seen approximately 1/week to check the needles and replace as necessary. (Treatment includes 4 pairs of semi permanent needles for 1 low price.) By treating specific points with ASP needles, your body is given a 24 hour a day reminder to restrict food urges, cravings, desires, and suppress your appetite.
ASP Ear Stapling works by applying stimulation to specific points in the ear. This stimulation along with the small semi-permanent stainless steel needle creates an appetite suppression, decrease in cravings and an increase of a person's overall metabolism.
Weight loss rates differ for each individual. Some will steadily lose weight while others have ups and downs throughout their efforts. For a person who has between 20-50lbs to lose, an average of 2-10lbs of weight loss in the first two weeks is normal.
ASP Ear Stapling can improve the results of an already present diet and exercise program or be used as a great start to a new program. It is designed to help you achieve a healthy lifestyle and compliments our Endermologie cellulite treatments.
The best way to increase your chances of success is to add a healthy diet and exercise program to your treatment.
