Acupuncture Q & A

What is acupuncture?

Acupuncture is part of traditional medicine, with origins in the ancient healing art from China and India. It works by unblocking the flow of energy, called chi, throughout your body. It’s primarily used to alleviate pain, but is also extremely effective at treating disease and restoring overall health.

Acupuncture triggers acupressure points that release your chi. Once released, chi travels along pathways known as meridians.

What can I expect during an acupuncture treatment?

Dr. Cabrera speaks with you to understand your whole health history and current needs. She customizes treatment to address your pain and determine how well you are functioning.

You’ll recline in a comfortable position and relax with soft music and dim lighting. During your comprehensive exam, Dr. Cabrera locates places where your chi is blocked or unbalanced and taps ultra-thin needles into those acupressure points to free your chi. She’ll leave the needles in place for about 5 to 30 minutes, never more than an hour, while your body’s natural chemicals flow into your tissues and muscles to prompt healing.

Does acupuncture hurt?

Most men and women tolerate acupuncture very well. As the fine needles make contact with your skin, you’ll feel a tingling sensation or temporary numbness in that area, but the pain is minimal and nothing to fear. Many of Dr. Cabrera’s patients say they don’t even feel the needle insertions.

What types of conditions benefit from acupuncture?

Acupuncture relieves a broad range of conditions, including:

  • Fatigue
  • Stress and anxiety
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Bronchitis
  • Asthma
  • Back and pelvic pain
  • Headaches
  • Allergies
  • Restless leg syndrome
  • Irritable bowel syndrome

Improvements are also evident with chronic conditions like Parkinson’s disease, rheumatoid arthritis, migraines, and infertility. In addition to pain and symptom relief, acupuncture soothes, relaxes, and rejuvenates you.

How many acupuncture treatments do I need?

Dr. Cabrera writes your treatment plan with the severity of your illness or energy unbalance in mind. For acute issues, you may only need two or three sessions to feel your best again. For chronic issues, she may recommend a dozen sessions over the course of a couple months.

To ward off stress and boost your immune system, consider regular acupuncture treatments at Holistic Care Solutions. Dr. Cabrera and her team guide you and help you determine how many sessions are right for you.
