How Does Acupuncture Work?


Acupuncture has been somewhat misrepresented by the mainstream media. As a result, those who have never undergone acupuncture before may envision a nurse haphazardly ramming needles into random parts of the body. In reality, acupuncture is an art form. It requires great precision and experience to be performed correctly. Dr. Yasmin Harounian, the chief physician here at Acupuncture Stem Cell, boasts both of these things. In treating patients, Dr. Harounian carefully inserts non-toxic fine needles into the portion of the body that is in need of healing. By targeting the acupressure points, Dr. Harounian can alleviate, and even, eradicate a variety of illnesses. These include gastrointestinal disorders, fertility issues, and disorders of the ear, nose, and throat. Some have even utilized acupuncture to treat more serious diseases, such as HIV and cancer. Those considering acupuncture must remember that it should never be pursued as an alternative to mainstream medical treatment. Instead, patients should use acupuncture to complement their medication. The National Health Institute has openly acknowledged the positive impact of acupuncture when used in this way. 


Do You Have To Use Needles?


Many people who consider acupuncture ultimately decide against it. This is often due to a fear of needles. The needles used by Dr. Harounian are sterilized, non-toxic, and totally harmless. They are unlikely to cause even the slightest bit of discomfort. Nonetheless, we understand the intimidation of the needles may be too great for some patients to overcome. For that reason, we offer a number of alternatives to traditional acupuncture. One such substitute procedure is electroacupuncture. While electroacupuncture does use needles to an extent, they primarily serve as conductors for a gentle electric current. The current enters the body, stimulating the targeted area in much the same manner as the needles in traditional acupuncture. For those who would prefer a needle-free approach, we offer laser acupuncture. This method uses low-energy lasers in place of needles. By focusing these lasers on the acupressure points, Dr. Harounian can increase blood circulation, reduce inflammation, and ease muscle pain. Laser acupuncture can be utilized to battle a plethora of additional disorders.
