Get Natural Relief from Plantar Fasciitis with Acupuncture!

If you are suffering from plantar fasciitis and want natural relief, acupuncture is the answer!

There are a variety of different foot problems that involve heel pain. Plantar fasciitis is the most common condition.

Plantar fasciitis occurs through tension and small tears of the soft tissue under the bottom of the heel bone. This painful condition is characterized by intense burning pain after rest. Plantar fasciitis usually occurs when the tension in the legs and lower back add to the strain on the heel fascia.

Acupuncture is very effective in treating plantar fasciitis because of its ability to reduce inflammation, the primary cause of the syndrome. It can also help to balance the muscles involved in walking so that the fascia is not strained, allowing it to heal. Acupuncture also relaxes the muscles of the foot, further decreasing inflammation, and stimulates the body to release endorphins, naturally relieving pain. Stretching your calf muscles before running or walking and wearing properly supportive footwear will also help your fascia heal.

Acupuncture is an ancient, time-tested form of therapy that has exceptionally few side effects. Modern research shows that not only is acupuncture effective in relieving foot pain, it can also treat other systems in the body like the nervous system, endocrine and immune systems, cardiovascular system, and digestive system.

With acupuncture, we look at your whole health history and tailor a treatment specifically to your needs. Many patients feel immediate improvements.

The best part? The treatment is safe, natural, effective and drug-free. 

Give yourself the gift of improved health and get relief from pain and stress today! Schedule an appointment at the CT Acupuncture Center.

Lyme Disease — Acupuncture Brings Relief from Symptoms

Boost your immunity and health with acupuncture!

Boost your immunity and health with acupuncture!

If you want to boost your immunity, and get relief from the symptoms of Lyme Disease, acupuncture is the answer!

Lyme disease by now is the best-known, worldwide example of a tick-borne disease. Many people have Lyme disease without experiencing any discomfort from symptoms. Many others are struggling with complex symptoms of Lyme, but are unaware that they are infected.

Lyme disease is transmitted to humans through the bite of an infected tick, specifically deer ticks. This tick, which is infested with a spirochete, bites a human and transmits the bacterium into the bloodstream. The symptoms typically appear within 7 to 14 days. A simple blood test is all that is required to determine if Lyme disease is present.

Lyme disease produces toxins and lipoproteins which trigger the immune system to produce many different kinds of inflammation.

Typical symptoms include joint ache, a rash on the skin (particularly in the area surrounding the bite) that often looks like a bull’s eye, headaches, fever, profuse sweating and fatigue, and neurological issues, though all of the symptoms are not present in every case.

Boost your whole family's immunity with acupuncture!

Boost your whole family’s immunity with acupuncture!

Lyme disease imitates a variety of illnesses and its severity can vary from person to person. Early detection and treatment is vital in preventing Lyme disease from advancing to the later stages.

At the earliest point in time, as soon as recognize you may have Lyme, go to a doctor, and get antibiotics immediately. The quicker and earlier the treatment, the better. The spirochetes are a serious problem that require proper antibiotics and MD care.

Give your health a boost with acupuncture!

Acupuncture is highly relevant and helpful for all phases of this disease, and is a wonderful addition to your primary support physician.

You will be amazed at the immediate improvement of joint symptoms, as well as the chronic fatigue factors that respond to the very first treatments. You can return to being pain-free, with a clear mind and good energy, without unpredictable ups and downs.

Acupuncture can improve the body’s immune response, the healing action, the body chemistry, and clearing the blockages in the energy pathways. Acupuncture also helps your brain to overcome the symptoms of neurological inflammation from the disease.

Depending on how long you have had Lyme, how many times, or how many years, you will need a series of treatments to hasten your complete recovery. Also important is ongoing attention to a healthy diet, nutritional supplementation, physical activity, and a positive mental outlook.

Lyme disease can be a very challenging condition to fight and recover from. As in all conditions and all patients, acupuncture treatment is always on a case-by-case basis. There are no harmful side effects and no possibility for addiction.

Fore! Acupuncture Great for Golfers

Improve Your Golf Game with Acupuncture

Don’t let pain or stiffness hold you back from playing your best game. Get back to the full swing of things with acupuncture!

You have the equipment, the membership, the gorgeous weather, the awesome outfit. As you know, a calm and healthy body and mind is essential to a great golf game. And now, acupuncture can help you to bring your game to the next level.

While golf is not generally a high-impact sport, there can be issues that arise. The American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine (AOSSM) has discovered the average golfer plays 37 rounds a year and is practicing more and more, so while they are improving their game, they are risking acute and chronic problems, specifically from strained muscles, repetitive motions and inflammation.

Acupuncture increases your flexibility on the golf course!

Acupuncture increases flexibility!

In addition, the factors of age, stress, tension and sedentary jobs can inhibit flexibility and range of motion, which can also directly impact a golfer’s game, potentially leading to injuries.

Acupuncture treats many different common conditions including low back pain, golfers elbow, rotator cuff injuries, hip pain, golfer’s elbow, neck and upper back pain, knee pain, and more.

Acupuncture also emphasizes the mind/body connection so that more than just a physical improvement, players can also benefit from better concentration and less stress and tension. 

So golfers, here are some of the best benefits of getting acupuncture!

  • Endorphins! Acupuncture releases those lovely chemicals that is our body’s natural way to kill pain.
  • Relaxes muscle spasms, and calms nerve irritation.
  • Releases your body’s natural steroids which reduce inflammation, which can lead to a better swing.
  • Improves blood flow and promotes faster healing.
  • Memory improvement – Remember that VP’s name on the 9th hole!
  • Regulation of hormones and body functions. A good thing.
  • Eliminates stress and elevates your mood. Nobody likes a golf club flying through the air!
  • Better sleep.
  • Improves your flexibility and range of motion. Again, a better and more consistent swing!
  • Enhances your immune system, which is useful if you’re shaking a lot of hands (after you win!).

So whether you are new to golf, and are looking to improve your game, or are dealing with a golf-related injury you would like help with, try acupuncture!

Get Back to Gardening Your Eden! Acupuncture Relieves Back Pain

Relieve the aches and pains of gardening with acupuncture!

Cultivate health – – Acupuncture eases the strains and sprains of gardening!

You’ve been aching to get at your yard and garden…and now so is your back! More than 80 percent of our population will experience lower back pain at some point in their lives. When you consider 40 million households in the U.S. actively tend a garden, that’s a lot of sore backs.

When gardening, about 80 to 90 percent of the movement is in a bent position which is unnatural on the body and, when prolonged, can lead to lower-back pain. Repetitive bending, reaching, twisting, and lifting – all actions common to gardening, and even light digging, planting, weeding, and mulching over the course of a long gardening season – tend to put the lower-lumbar area of the back at risk.

Remember to stretch before any strenuous activity -- even gardening!

Remember to stretch before any strenuous activity — even gardening!

Back pain is one of the most common reasons why people see their doctor — and their acupuncturist! Acupuncture can effectively help acute and chronic back pain and many other pain related issues naturally. Back pain limits range of motion and complicates daily activities.

Planted the potatoes and now you’re feeling the burn? Some back pain is accompanied by tingling and burning and acupuncture treatments work very well for those conditions as well.

Working in the garden is a wonderful way to get some exercise, grow your own food and flowers, enjoy nature, and nourish your inner self.

Let acupuncture ease your aches and pains so you can get back out there — pain free!

Here’s some more advice to take good care of your back during the gardening season.

  • To prevent overstretching your back, warm up before you start. Try taking a walk around the block, to loosen up your limbs, or a hot shower.
  • Even when you’re warmed up, it’s still possible to injure your back. Repetitive motions and lifting heavy objects improperly are definitely risky garden business for backs. Don’t bend and twist when lifting something heavy!
  • Try switching tasks every 15 minutes, and use knee pads when pulling weeds and planting. Lift with your legs and keep your back straight.

Have You Turned into a Lobster? Acupuncture Relieves Sunburn

Acupuncture Brings Sunburn Relief

Acupuncture Brings Sunburn Relief

If you’ve overdone it in the sun – – Acupuncture brings sunburn relief!

The weather is gorgeous, everyone is out and about in their gardens, playing or hiking outside, or floating on the water. It’s also very easy to forget how quickly an afternoon in the sun can turn someone into a walking lobster.

Acupuncture to the rescue! It’s not necessarily the first thing you think about when you think about sunburn, but acupuncture will not only help soothe the pain, it will make you feel more relaxed in the process.

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, sunburn is a trapping of damp heat in the skin that must be treated by releasing the heat and soothing the accompanying pain. In addition, acupuncture can also give the immune system a boost, and relieve the general fatigue and malaise often present after a major sun exposure.

Besides aftercare, a little prevention goes a very long way — here’s some great advice for more fun than burning in the sun.

Tips For Avoiding Sunburn
Love the Sun! But Be Safe!

Love the Sun! But Be Safe!

  • Seems simple…avoid the sun when it’s at super strength. Don’t stay out for long periods of time between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. If you’re outdoors during this time, keep in mind that you’ll burn faster than at other times of the day.
  • Beware of reflective surfaces. Water or sand can bounce as much as 17% of the sun’s ultraviolet rays back at you.
  • Going to be out in the sun for a while? Use clothing such as cover-ups, long, loose-fitting pants and tops, and wide-brimmed hats to protect you. Choose lightweight fabrics that are cool, but will still give you sun protection. Remember your sunglasses! Eyes can burn, too.
  • Wear sunblock. Sunblock will protect your skin from the sun’s rays, but be aware that many contain questionable chemicals that are not typically regulated. Choose natural varieties from your health food store, and be sure to reapply the sunblock if you have been in the water or have been sweating.
  • Be a shady lady or gentleman! A simple way to avoid sunburn is to go in a shaded area to get out of the sun. If a shaded area is not available, use an umbrella. It will also make it easier for your friends and family to locate you on the beach! Win/win!

Don’t Let Ticks Under Your Skin! Acupuncture Helps with Lyme Disease

Splendor in the Grass -- Without the Lyme Disease!

Acupuncture is a great ally for those with Lyme!

Lyme disease doesn’t need to stop you in your tracks – – Acupuncture helps!

Lyme disease by now is the best-known, worldwide example of a tick-borne disease. Many people have Lyme disease without experiencing any discomfort from symptoms. Many others are struggling with complex symptoms of Lyme, but are unaware that they are infected, and so are not getting treatment.

Left untreated, it can lead to permanent problems with the heart, joints and nervous system. Typical symptoms include joint ache, a rash on the skin (particularly in the area surrounding the bite) that often looks like a bull’s eye, headaches, fever, profuse sweating and fatigue, though all of the symptoms are not present in every case. Lyme disease imitates a variety of illnesses and its severity can vary from person to person. Early detection and treatment is vital in preventing Lyme disease from advancing to the later stages.

Lyme disease is transmitted to humans through the bite of an infected tick, specifically deer ticks. This tick, which is infested with a spirochete, bites a human and transmits the bacterium into the bloodstream. Fortunately, deer ticks don’t bite humans immediately upon contact; they typically spend several hours crawling around before attaching themselves to the skin. However, if you have been bitten, the symptoms typically appear within 7 to 14 days. A simple blood test is all that is required to determine if Lyme disease is present.

At the earliest point in time, as soon as recognize you may have Lyme, go to a doctor, and get antibiotics immediately. The quicker and earlier the treatment, the better. The spirochetes are a serious problem that require proper antibiotics and MD care.

Send Shin Splints to the Sidelines with Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a great running buddy!

Acupuncture is a great running buddy!

Runners and other athletes take note — acupuncture helps heal injuries!

If you are someone that that has undergone intense athletic training, you’ve most likely experienced shin splints (or tibial stress syndrome) at some point.  It’s very common with runners, dancers, hikers, football players, and even casual walkers.

Shin splints often occur after sudden changes in physical activity. This condition is caused by putting too much strain on the connective tissues that join the shin bones to muscle.

Treating shin splints with acupuncture can be very effective, especially when it is addressed early on, and healing time and pain can be reduced dramatically.  A 2002 study published in the Journal of Chinese Medicine showed that athletes with shin splints who underwent acupuncture reported significantly lower pain levels than athletes who received traditional sports medicine treatments, such as anti-inflammatory medication. Subjects who received acupuncture also found that the pain interfered less with the playing of their sport.

Not only can acupuncture reduce the pain, inflammation, and swelling associated with shin splints, it reduces the inflammation and pain of bursitis to promote recovery, and as in many of these common sports injuries, acupuncture reduces the pain, inflammation and tension of Plantar Fasciitis. It also relaxes muscles in the lower legs and low back which relate to the soles of the feet through the fascia.

Acupuncture is also a very effective treatment for acute or chronic muscle tension and soreness, even if there is no diagnosed injury. Acupuncture relaxes the individual muscle fibers, releases endorphins, and increases blood flow to tense and blocked areas.

Acupuncture is great for all athletes!

Acupuncture is great for all athletes!

Sports injuries often take a long time to heal, especially where ligaments or tendons are concerned. All connective tissue can heal properly when given the chance and supported in the healing process.

Acupuncture can speed up the healing process by returning the natural energy flow to the affected area of the body so that you can heal. This lets you feel better, and get out there to have some more fun!

Back To School? Tune Up Your Student (or Yourself) with Acupuncture!

Healthy is Happy!

Healthy is Happy!

 Students — get the edge with acupuncture!

Summer’s almost over, and school is about to start — wouldn’t it be nice to know you have all the school supplies you need? (Including more energy, more focus, less stress and better sleep?)

Acupuncture can provide all of this — and if your student is also an athlete, acupuncture provides both bolstering of the immune system and relief from those aches and pains that come from all that hard work. 

Acupuncture is great at relieving headaches, (even migraines) and the insomnia that all those deadlines can cause.

How does acupuncture do all of this? 

Acupuncture is based on the traditional Chinese teaching that energy, or qi (pronounced “chee”), courses through the body along channels called meridians; illness occurs when that flow is disrupted. Scientists are starting to identify some of the physiological mechanisms at work, and there’s evidence that the insertion of needles into designated acupuncture points speeds the conduction of electromagnetic signals within the body. These signals increase the flow of endorphins and other pain-relieving chemicals, as well as immune system cells, which aid healing. Acupuncture effects every major system of the body, including the cardiac, gastrointestinal, circulatory, cerebral, genitourinary, endocrine and immune systems.

Treat Yourself to Acupuncture - Restore Your Balance!

Restore Your Balance with Acupuncture!

Generally speaking, acupuncture has three primary effects:

  • It relieves pain.
  • It reduces inflammation.
  • It restores homeostasis.

(Homeostasis refers to the body’s ability to regulate its environment and maintain internal balance.)

With the understanding that most diseases are characterized by pain, inflammation and disturbance of homeostasis, we begin to understand why acupuncture can be effective for so many conditions.

And be helpful for you!

Have Teenage Skin (and you’re over 30)? Acupuncture For Acne!

Beautiful skin with acupuncture!

Yes, beauty is more than skin deep. However, for those who suffer from skin issues, it can certainly feel like beauty is only for those with good lighting.

We know that’s not the case! Firstly, please know you’re gorgeous. Secondly, you’re not alone in suffering from acne — 85% of teenagers and up to 40% of adults have acne.

And thirdly, if you happen to have acne, there is help! Acupuncture can help relieve the inflammation and work from the inside out to give you the complexion you’ve been wanting.

How is acupuncture good for acne?

Acupuncture treatments are effective because they treat more than the symptoms of acne. When acupuncture is used for acne, it targets specific areas of the body that are known to trigger digestion and the immune system and to reduce inflammation. It also works on regulating your body’s internal structures, organs and functions, as well as balancing hormone levels.

There’s been years of research behind this as well. In 2009, Tianjin University of TCM in China looked at 1,613 case studies about acne and acupuncture conducted over a period of 40 years. After evaluating the studies in combination with western medicine studies, the researchers found that found acupoint stimulation treatments were as effective, and possibly more effective, than many Western acne treatment methods. Acupuncture treatments do not have painful side effects, like bleached skin, itchy skin, or flaking skin, which can occur with many traditional treatments. 

Want Pretty Skin? Eat Eggs!

Restoring the body’s balance is key, and paying attention to your diet will also aid in clearing acne. Increasing Omega-3 levels, and vitamin A and D, (they’re antiproliferative, which means they stop the growth of malignant cells) will help. A and D are also responsible for producing skin hormones and benefiting the immune system. Vitamin D is also helpful for reducing autoimmune disorders, and lowering the rate of infectious diseases.  

Foods High in Omega-3chick and egg

  • Pasture-raised meats
  • Eggs
  • Edamame (green soybeans)
  • Wild rice
  • Walnuts
  • Flax
  • Beans

 

Foods High in Vitamin D

  • Shiitake and Button Mushrooms
  • Mackerel (lots of Omega-3 here, too)
  • Sockeye Salmon (A 3½ ounce portion of cooked salmon gives 90% of the recommended dietary intake of Vitamin D.)
  • SardinesWoman with kale
  • Tuna
  • Eggs

Foods High in Vitamin A

  • Sweet Potato
  • Carrots
  • Dark Leafy Greens
  • Squash
  • Dried Apricots
  • Tuna

Summer’s here, and it’s time to stop hiding! Acupuncture can help balance the body and restore the acne-fighting elements of the body. Changing your diet, supplementing with acne-fighting foods, and getting weekly acupuncture treatments will lead you on the path to beautiful skin. Beautiful skin, a beautiful you, inside and out!

Fist Bump! Acupuncture Works Wonders for Wrist Pain

 
Strong and Healthy Wrists with Acupuncture!
Strong and Healthy Wrists with Acupuncture!
Is wrist pain keeping you from doing all that you’d like to, or what you used to?

It’s amazing how much we rely on our hands and wrists. Wrist issues are becoming very common in many workplaces and can grow into much bigger issues if left untreated. Acupuncture is very effective at treating chronic pain, such as arthritis, low back, neck or muscle pain, and pain after surgery, and is also very helpful with wrist issues, including tendonitis, arthritis, and Carpel Tunnel Syndrome.

Tendonitis is an inflammation of the tendon or cord of fibrous tissue that attaches a muscle to a bone. It is often accompanied by tenosynovitis, which is an inflammation of the lining of the tendon sheath.  The symptoms of these conditions are pain and tenderness at or near a joint, especially upon movement of the joint; possible swelling over the area; and in some cases numbness and tingling. Stiffness, along with the pain can restrict movement of the joint involved.

Acupuncture can address the inflammatory effects, improving wrist motion and decreasing pain. In addition, acupuncture can be used to retrain muscle coordination, alleviating the initial cause of the inflammation.

Arthritis sufferers are also helped by acupuncture. Arthritis may develop at several possible sites in the hand. Acupuncture can help control the inflammation and pain. Many cases will benefit from treatment of the neck region as well, since the hand region receives neural input from the spinal cord in the neck. 

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is one of the most common job-related injuries and is responsible for the highest number of days lost among all work related injuries. It is also the most frequent surgery of the hand and wrist. Many attribute the rise of CTS to poor computer ergonomics or uncomfortable body positioning for long hours. And for hairdressers, computer programmers, seamstresses, woodworkers, artists, and musicians and many more — this serious injury can mean the sidelining of a livelihood.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a painful progressive condition caused by compression of a key nerve in the wrist. It occurs when the median nerve, which runs from the forearm into the hand, becomes pressed or squeezed at the wrist. The median nerve controls sensations to the palm side of the thumb and fingers, as well as impulses to some small muscles in the hand that allow the fingers and thumb to move.

Symptoms usually start gradually, with frequent tingling, burning, or numbness in the palm of the hand and the fingers, especially the thumb, index and middle fingers. The symptoms often first appear during the night. As symptoms worsen, people might feel pain, weakness, or numbness in the hand and wrist, that radiates up the arm during the day. It can lead to decreased grip strength, which may make it difficult to form a fist, grasp small objects, or perform other manual tasks. If not properly treated, CTS can cause irreversible nerve damage and permanent deterioration of muscle tissue. But drugs, shots or surgery may not be necessary.

Acupuncture has been shown to be very effective in clearing the causes to carpal tunnel symptoms. Acupuncture is safer than NSAIDs and cortisone shots, and it actually eliminates the pain source rather than temporarily masking symptoms.

Point sites chosen are located in the wrist, forearm, and the neck, upper back area. There is often quite a bit of tension in the muscles and tendons in these areas, and acupuncture releases this tension. The energy supply is restored which also improves the blood and fluid flow pathways to these soft tissue structures. Often the patient experiences immediate improvement. Acupuncture addresses any headaches, neck pain, shoulder stiffness and sleeping problems that often accompany this condition, as well as reducing the swelling, inflammation and pain in the wrist.  High five!
