Acupuncture treatments provide a safe and effective alternative to modern medicine for a variety of chronic conditions. At Endpoint Wellness of Albuquerque, we offer a variety of holistic treatments including acupuncture to help you achieve balance and wellness in your life.
We’re also happy to answer your questions so that you can understand the benefits of acupuncture and whether holistic medicine is right for you.
Is Acupuncture Safe?
New patients are often concerned about the safety of acupuncture and worried that it might hurt. We are happy to put your mind at ease about both of these fears.
When performed by a certified Doctor of Oriental Medicine, acupuncture is entirely safe. We use sterile, single-use needles and insert them precisely into pressure points. The needles are extremely thin and are not inserted deeply. There is no blood or pain associated with acupuncture, just a feeling of pressure that may radiate or spread; many patients find this sensation deeply relaxing and pleasant. Other treatments, like Microlight, do not use needles at all.
Why Choose Acupuncture?
Unlike pharmaceuticals, acupuncture has no side effects and can be safely practiced on pregnant women, the elderly, people with compromised immune systems, and others who may struggle with other treatments.
Because acupuncture works by activating your body’s own immune system, it is effective at treating a variety of ailments. It boosts overall immunity, reduces systemic inflammation and can help with pain management, chronic illness, anxiety, depression, and more.
