Welcome to Hinze Chiropractic & Acupuncture located in Omaha NE. With all of the advancements in modern medicine, people often forget or ignore the benefits of acupuncture. However, acupuncture is one of only a few health care options that has a history encompassing a time frame extending back before 10,000 BC. Over that time, acupuncture has helped millions of people recover from hundreds of sicknesses and heal in a non-invasive, natural way. In fact, the World Health Organization recently released a document describing the many benefits of acupuncture, revealing that this approach to health care has been proven to help with over 28 conditions. With the overwhelming success of acupuncture, our Omaha NE acupuncturists at Hinze Chiropractic & Acupuncture in Omaha NE have put together this short article to provide you with some basic information about this health care option.

The success of acupuncture is largely tied to its unique approach to healing. Traditionally, acupuncture has focused on restoring the flow of the body’s vital substances which allows the body to heal itself. To accomplish this, acupuncturists focus on creating a balance between the body's organ systems so that it can function properly. Ancient Chinese medical practitioners labeled one of the body’s vital substances as Qi (chee). Qi is what allows a person to function and is responsible for determining a person’s health state.

Is Acupuncture Safe?

Acupuncture is safe, non-invasive, and painless. This procedure stimulates the natural healing processes of the human body.

How Does Acupuncture Work?

While the study of acupuncture is complex, practitioners focus on stabilizing the pathways of the Qi which flows through various vessels in the body. It is believed that when these vessels become unbalanced, the cells, organs, and tissues within the body are deprived of their necessary nutrition and other vital substances. Unless these disruptions are corrected in a timely matter, the affected area of the body often becomes diseased or even dies. Conversely, if these vessels are opened up and remain open, normal function in the body can be restored. In fact, many patients report a reduction or absence of symptoms such as pain, tiredness, and nausea immediately upon receiving their first acupuncture treatment.

While the Western doctor views the human body mechanically as a machine that needs to be fixed, the Eastern doctor views the human body as a dynamic organism that is capable of thriving when it is in a balanced state. Thus the Western doctor is like a mechanic and the Eastern doctor is like a farmer. Plants cannot be made to grow, rather the correct environment is created so the plants can thrive.

What Does An Acupuncturist Do?

Our acupuncturists at Hinze Chiropractic & Acupuncture will conduct a comprehensive health history to see if you would benefit from our care. This information will allow us to construct a treatment plan that will benefit each individual patient and help them on the pathway to a healthy life and overall well-being.

When we locate the disruptions of Qi, sterile acupuncture needles are placed under the skin in the corresponding areas. Again, this is painless and completely safe. The needles stimulate areas of Qi disruption allowing flow to be restored. When the flow is restored, the body will be more able to heal itself.
