Backed by more than 2,000 years of evidentiary research, the ancient practice of Chinese acupuncture is gaining new momentum in treating modern wellness issues. Proven to be both a powerful and effective treatment method, acupuncture works by balancing the life energy (Qi) flowing through the body.
According to the traditions of Chinese medicine, illness arises when the cyclical flow of Qi in the meridians become blocked or unbalanced- breaking down your body’s own natural healing processes.
Both the World Health Organization (WHO) and the National Institute of Health (NIH) endorse acupuncture, stating it is an effective treatment for many pain-related medical problems including lower back pain, fibromyalgia, headaches, osteoarthritis, and carpal tunnel syndrome.
At Stone Bridge Wellness, Dr. Beth Snyder carefully places very thin, painless needles just a few millimeters under the skin at corresponding points along these meridians. As your body’s natural energy flow is unblocked and specific areas of the body are stimulated, you will remain completely at ease and relax into your treatment.
Dr. Snyder incorporates the complementary practices of gua sha and massage therapy as well as Five Elements acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Combining these treatments with chiropractic adjustments can further accelerate the healing process while providing long lasting results.
Stone Bridge Wellness accepts most major insurance plans, although many policies do not cover acupuncture.
