At Round Rock Health and Wellness, we offer a wide variety of health treatments, including Acupuncture. Even though this treatment has been around for centuries, it has risen in popularity in recent years because of its effective way to treat certain injuries, as well as soreness and pain.

The treatment is based on the principle that energy flows through the body in harmonious pathways known as meridians. When an injury or illness occurs, these pathways can become blocked which creates an imbalance. Acupuncture is performed to influence and stimulate this natural flow with the use of thin needles that lightly penetrate. Acupuncture also helps to reduce insomnia and anxiety. Our seasoned and Licensed Acupuncturists believe many ailments we suffer from today are caused by imbalances in our body, and Acupuncture assists in correcting those imbalances. We are passionate about providing patients with this amazing noninvasive therapy, which promotes natural healing and overall well-being.

Reasons for Acupuncture

People use acupuncture for so many different reasons. It can be a procedure on its own, or combined with other treatments, such as massage therapy or chiropractic therapy. Some studies have shown that acupuncture reduces nausea during pregnancy, and also for those who are undergoing chemotherapy. It is commonly used for headaches, arthritis, lower back pain, anxiety and depression, and certain addictions.

Acupuncture treats a wide range of conditions, including but not limited to:

  •      Respiratory: allergies, cold, flu
  •      Circulatory: high blood pressure, low blood pressure, atherosclerosis, coronary heart disease
  •      Gastrointestinal: IBS, acid reflux, digestive difficulties
  •      Gynecological: premenstrual syndrome, painful periods, infertility, menopause
  •      Neurological: headaches, post-op pain, stroke recovery
  •     Immune: Immune system support
  •     Urogenital: UTIs, incontinence, sexual dysfunction

About the treatment

All patients are required to fill out a questionnaire and brief summary of the pain they are experiencing prior to treatment. (See Our NEW PATIENTS tab for the needed forms).  atients should also eat a full meal at least 2 hours before their session. During private sessions, patients may need to remove their clothes for treatment, especially if patients are receiving treatment to their back, chest, abdominal area, or legs. Prior to treatment, the Acupuncturist may take your pulse and examine your tongue. This is all part of the diagnostic process.

Once the acupuncturist determines the point of tension and/or pain in your body, they will begin inserting needles. Don’t assume that the areas of discomfort are where the needles will be inserted. A patient may be suffering from shoulder pain, but the needles will actually be inserted in the ankle. Initial insertion of the needles may be uncomfortable, but this is normal. The Acupuncturist may stimulate a needle several times to produce further healing. Other techniques, such as microcurrent stimulation may also be included in the session. Microcurrent stimulation is the use of a hand-held device that produces very tiny electrical impulses. Removal of the needles are typically painless.

What to Expect

Patients should wear loose clothing and may need to undress depending on the areas of treatment.  Appropriate draping will be utilized if this is necessary.  As the treatment progresses, you might feel a tingling, distended, warm, or slightly electric feel around the needles; these sensations are absolutely normal, called "Qi sensation". (Of course, if any needle is uncomfortable in any way, your practitioner will be there to adjust it or remove it altogether). Following treatment, patients can expect to feel very relaxed and should give themselves some time to reorient themselves before driving. Sessions will range from 30 minutes to 1.5 hour depending on the condition(s) being treated. Many of our patients come back routinely for additional treatments as needed. This varies depending on what is being addressed.
