Introduction: Welcome to our acupuncture services—a time-tested healing practice that combines ancient wisdom with modern science to promote holistic well-being and optimal health. Acupuncture is a safe and effective form of traditional Chinese medicine that has been practiced for thousands of years. At Gonzalez Chiropractic in Shawnee KS, we are passionate about helping you experience the transformative benefits of acupuncture to restore balance, alleviate pain, and enhance your overall quality of life.

What is Acupuncture? Acupuncture involves the insertion of thin, sterile needles into specific points on the body known as acupoints. These acupoints are located along energy pathways, or meridians, that flow throughout the body. By stimulating these points, our licensed and experienced acupuncturists aim to restore the balanced flow of vital energy (qi) within your body.

How Does Acupuncture Work? According to traditional Chinese medicine, disruptions in the flow of qi can lead to various health issues. By applying gentle and precise needle techniques, acupuncture helps to unblock energy pathways and regulate the body's functions. Modern research suggests that acupuncture may stimulate the release of endorphins, natural pain-relieving chemicals, and influence the nervous system, immune system, and other physiological processes to promote healing and well-being.

What to Expect During an Acupuncture Session: Your first acupuncture session at Gonzalez Chiropractic will begin with a comprehensive assessment of your medical history, current health concerns, and treatment goals. We will take the time to understand your unique needs to create a personalized treatment plan.

During the acupuncture session, you will lie comfortably on a treatment table while our acupuncturist gently inserts the thin needles into the selected acupoints. You may feel a mild, temporary sensation as the needles are placed, but the process is generally painless and relaxing.

The number of needles used and the treatment duration will vary based on your individual needs. Some clients experience immediate relief, while others may notice gradual improvements over a series of sessions.
