Choose to Feel Better for Longer: Healing Acupuncture for Aurora, IL

Our bodies and minds often work as hard as they can to resist stressors, but they cannot continue indefinitely without increasing wear and fatigue. Whether we’re dealing with aches and pains or regular mental pressures, at some point we need to pause and return to our peaceful selves.

We might first turn to remedies such as improving our diet, relaxing or exercising more or taking a prescription. These approaches may offer us a sense of relief and progress for a time. But our ailments can often begin to show signs again, and once more we will search for how to manage them.

A Touch of Ginger restores your lasting connection to health and well-being by getting to the root of what ails you. We achieve this by applying Chinese medicine to determine which of your body’s organ systems is affecting you because it’s out of balance.

Our treatments provide meaningful therapy and pain relief for diverse afflictions such as migraines, back pain and shoulder pain. They can even support fertility for Aurora women by increasing blood flow to the uterus as well as helping to regulate hormones.

Acupuncture by A Touch of Ginger is designed for anyone from infants to seniors.

Aurora, IL: The Power of Acupuncture

Acupuncture uses very fine needles on the surface of the skin to stimulate specific points on the body. This frees the movement of blocked qi (pronounced chee) in the body.

Qi is the Chinese concept of the life essence that powers the body to perform. It courses through the body’s pathways with start and end points on the head, hands and feet. When the body has plentiful qi that is moving in concert with properly functioning organs, a person is aligned with good health.

The flow of qi can be disrupted by factors such as disease, pathogens and physical or emotional trauma. When your qi is blocked and your organs are imbalanced, your body will send distress signals that require attention. Through acupuncture, your blocked qi is released to flow fully again for a sense of well-being.
