Many common conditions can be treated with acupuncture; and, when treated in conjunction with chiropractic, many times the recovery process takes less time than if treated alone.
Acupuncture is based on meridian channels that are located throughout your body. When there are inferences in a meridian channel the body can not function properly. Acupuncture points are located in the meridians, which are then needled to help move chi or vital energy in the body to help your body heal.
In the acupuncture field there are different designations for people who perform this type of healing. There are chiropractorsand medical doctors who receive a certificate of acupuncture and licensed acupuncturists. Licensed acupuncturists have a master’s degree in acupuncture and can practice without a licensed health professional. A chiropractor and medical doctor may practice with certification in acupuncture under their professional license.
