Malibu acupuncture is a crowded scene. It seems like every day a new acupuncturist sets up shop in the city. Unfortunately, not every acupuncturist operating in Malibu is capable of correctly performing acupuncture procedures. Many are even unfamiliar with the history of alternative Eastern medicine. When it comes to an art form like acupuncture, which is so steeped in tradition, such ignorance can prove fatal. A Malibu resident can only be sure of effective acupuncture treatment if they visit us at Acupuncture Stem Cell.
What Makes Us So Special?
As mentioned above, Malibu has become a hotbed of subpar acupuncture clinics. In fact, this could be said for California as a whole. We often hear reports from California residents who dropped hundreds of dollars on acupuncture only to find it was totally ineffective. In more extreme cases, we have heard stories of acupuncture actually causing a patient’s pain to worsen. Such situations can, understandably, leave a person wary of acupuncture. The great tragedy is that had these patients chosen Acupuncture Stem Cell, their experiences would have been very different.
Our clinic was founded by Dr. Yasmin Harounian. Unlike the novice acupuncturists popping up across California, Dr. Harounian has many years of experience under her belt. She has studied extensively in traditional Chinese medicine, learning her trade from some of the most skilled Eastern acupuncturists. Through them, she learned that to truly heal a patient’s body, an acupuncturist must heal their spirit as well. With this in mind, she developed a multifaceted approach to acupuncture. By crafting a personal connection with each of her patients, Dr. Harounian is able to establish the underlying causes of their afflictions. This markedly increases the chances of acupuncture having a positive and permanent effect on a patient's life.
What Can Acupuncture Treat?
Acupuncture has long been subjected to scrutiny. For decades, skeptics have sought to discredit acupuncture and those who practice. While critics may be able to discredit the under-qualified practitioners discussed above, the positive impact acupuncture can have a patient’s life cannot be denied. Even the National Health Institute has recognized the power of acupuncture in treating a variety of conditions. These conditions include muscle and joint pain, especially among athletes looking for a speedy alternative to surgery. Acupuncture is also regularly used to treat ear, nose, and throat disorders, along with digestive issues. There is even some research to suggest it is useful in combating HIV.
It is important to remember that acupuncture should be used in conjunction with more mainstream medical treatment. Dr. Harounian will never encourage a patient to abandon their medical treatment in favor of acupuncture.
