An Exploration of Acupuncture

Discover how millions of people discover optimum health thru Acupuncture.

Put simply, acupuncture is the insertion of fine, sterile needles at specific points to regulate the body’s energy flow and to treat a wide variety of ailments. Acupuncture and herbal medicine form the cornerstones of Traditional Chinese Medicine, which has been practiced for over 2000 years. Acupuncture is based on the theory that the body’s vital energy, or Qi, sustains vitality. If this energy flow is disrupted, a person will experience pain or disease.

Acupuncture regulates the flow of Qi, and most people experience a profound relaxation during treatments. Modern research has shown that acupuncture works with the central nervous system to stimulate the release of endorphins, improve circulation, and enhance immune function. There have been large, well-designed studies that prove the effectiveness of acupuncture in treating arthritis, increasing the success rate of IVF, real treatment for headaches and many other ailments.  Body Techniques offers Acupuncture and Herbal-Based healing treatments with Hamid Malek-Madani, L.Ac

What conditions can Acupuncture Treat?

Acupuncture is highly effective for almost any condition that Western medicine can treat, and for many it is more effective. Some of the most common ailments for which patients seek treatments are: headaches, back and joint pain, gynecological conditions, carpel tunnel syndrome, depression, insomnia, asthma, addiction, stroke, sexual dysfunction, bladder/kidney disorders, high blood pressure, immune system deficiency, colds and flu, side effects of surgery and chemotherapy.

What can I expect during a treatment?

Because the body is an integrated system, Acupuncturists diagnose the specific ailment based on a holistic assessment of your overall health.  The Acupuncturist will ask about your medical history, current condition, lifestyle, appetite, body temperature, pain patterns, etc. She will also check your tongue, posture, and skin color and take your pulse in both wrists for signs or organ or energy imbalance.  With this information, the Acupuncturist will determine where to insert needles, use gentle electrical stimulation, or apply moxibustion, herbs, or other techniques to treat the ailment.

What kind of needles are used, and will I feel any pain?

Most Acupuncture needles are made of very thin, flexible stainless steel. They are inserted just below the skin. Patients sometimes experience a tingling sensation or heat, a sign that energy is flowing, but they do not typically feel pain. If you feel some discomfort, the Acupuncturist can usually adjust the needle to relieve the pressure.

When will I start to see results?

Usually, patients see improvements immediately, and some conditions require only one visit. Acute conditions are often cured or alleviated in two to three visits, while chronic conditions may require five to fifteen.

How are Acupuncturists Trained?

Acupuncturists complete extensive, advanced professional and academic training in science and medicine. In California, they are required to complete a Master’s degree from an approved school and pass a comprehensive state licensing exam, one of the most rigorous in the country.

Is Acupuncture covered by my insurance?

Increasingly, insurance companies cover Acupuncture because it is effective and often less costly than Western medicine. California State MediCal and Workers’ Compensation both cover Acupuncture treatments.

Cosmetic Acupuncture, aka, the Acupuncture Facelift

Is that great sense of humor of yours leaving you with some not-so-funny laugh lines? Well, a younger-looking face may lie at the end of some needles — acupuncture needles, that is.  Cosmetic acupuncture is a powerful alternative to the traditional surgical facelift or the increasingly popular injections.

What cosmetic acupuncture does is “stir the energy pot”, bringing blood flow to the face and stimulating collagen production which is the key to youthful looking skin. A course of 12 treatments (twice a week for 6 weeks) will deliver a younger healthier you.

Acupuncture Facelifts involve insertion of tiny needles into specific points on the face to “enhance” one’s appearance to a more youthful glow. For many centuries women have been using all sorts of methods to reduce wrinkles, fine lines and crow’s feet on their faces.  One of the safest and most effective methods of anti-aging is facial rejuvenation with acupuncture face lifts.  This minimally invasive, non-surgical technique has been around for many years as a well kept secret in Traditional Chinese Medicine used by both men and women to stimulate collagen, as well as plump and firm the face in order to minimize and eliminate fine lines and wrinkles.

Research has shown that a Cosmetic Acupuncture facelift can last 2-5 years. It is important to understand that the aging process continues during this time. Diet, lifestyle and illnesses can affect the length of the results. When a patient experiences a dramatic event in their life they can undergo a few treatments to help restore balance.

 After the initial treatment maintenance is minimal. A treatment once every 4-6 weeks maintains the results you got. Or some patients choose to have the whole protocol once a year to revitalize the results and their whole body, mind and spirit as the Acupuncture Facelift benefits are more than just facial rejuvenation. Either way, you will see results and be very happy with The Acupuncture Facelift even after just one treatment!

Thanks to Hamid, I am very happy about the treatments that I have received. I did this in order to make myself happy, not to look better for others; however, it is a pleasure to receive compliments from my friends who have not seen me for a few weeks. Without anyone knowing about the acupuncture treatments, they say how much change they notice in my face. This natural treatment produced such noticeable difference. For me, there is nothing better than feeling good about myself.
