Acupuncture in Hoffman Estates

Acupuncture works by stimulating nerve fibers in the body that trigger the release of pain blocking neurotransmitters and increase circulation to different areas of the body.  A one inch, VERY tiny needle is inserted using a plastic insertion tube approximately 1/8 of an inch into specific spots throughout the body.

How Acupuncture Can Help

You may try acupuncture for symptomatic relief of a variety of conditions, including:

  • Hoffman Estates AcupunctureHeadaches/Migraines
  • Neck pain/stiffness
  • Low back pain
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Fybromyalgia
  • Insomnia
  • Stress/Anxiety
  • Menstrual Cramps
  • Infertility

Acupuncture is usually painless, however, there may be a “mosquito bite” type sensation with the insertion of the needle with no real discomfort afterwards.  Treatments are typically 20-30 minutes in length and could be anywhere between 1-3 time per week.

The risks of acupuncture are low if you have a certified practitioner administering the needles. Possible side effects may include soreness, bleeding or bruising at the needle sites.
