Common Misconceptions about Acupuncture in Deltona, FL

Acupuncture, the practice of inserting small needles into the body at precise acupuncture points to treat various illnesses, has helped many residents throughout the Deltona, FL vicinity. But there are variety of myths and misconceptions about this form of treatment that has been practiced for more than three thousand years that are simply not true.

Because the treatment involves inserting needles there is an assumption that it is a painful treatment. This is probably the most commonly circulated acupuncture myth around. While it's true that acupuncturists insert needles into the skin, the needles are very thin and fine -- not much bigger than a cat's whisker. It's normal for patients to experience a prick or pinch at first, but it dissipates as the acupuncturist adjusts the needle and continues the treatment. Over time, most patients experience a pleasant heaviness or electrical sensation. Many describe the treatment as being highly therapeutic even on an emotional level, and anticipate the Qi sensation that comes with it. This feeling is attributed to the body's healing energy beginning to do its work.

Acupuncture treatment in Deltona, FL is a valid option that many established medical institutions support and even recommend -- including the U.S. Military. The National Institutes of Health has been known to fund acupuncture clinical studies, and the World Health Organization recognizes acupuncture as a treatment option for a wide variety of medical conditions and ailments.

Due to its common use to treat chronic pain, many people are led to believe that acupuncture, like some painkillers, has addictive properties. As a result, they mistakenly believe that patients who seek this form of treatment will become dependent on it. For most conditions, acupuncture alleviates the core problem, and once treatment is complete, you don't have to go back. For chronic conditions, you may have regular acupuncture treatments to maintain its positive effects.
