Sugar Grove (IL): Why Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is an ancient healing method founded in China more than 3,000 years ago. It focuses on qi (pronounced chee), which is the Chinese concept of the life force or energy that fuels the body’s performance.

This essence courses through our inner pathways with start and end points on the head, hands and feet. When qi is abundant and moving freely with properly functioning organs, we enjoy a greater sense of well-being.

A person’s qi can be disrupted by factors such as disease, pathogens and physical or emotional trauma. When your qi is blocked and your organs are out of balance, your body sends distress signals that require attention.

To release the qi and re-establish inner balance, acupuncture uses very fine needles on the skin’s surface to stimulate the exact acupuncture points associated with a particular ailment. This restoration of your qi contributes to a natural return of feeling good health and inner equilibrium.

A Touch of Ginger helps you get to the root of whatever your pain or discomfort may be. We achieve this by applying Chinese medicine to determine the organ system that is out of balance within your body.

Sugar Grove (IL): What Does Acupuncture Involve?

Your path to feeling greater peace and well-being begins with arranging your first appointment. When you meet with us to get started, we will listen to you and focus on learning about you.

This initial appointment usually lasts around 90 minutes. We’ll review your medical history and gain insight into your current ailment. We may perform some other basic examinations as well.

As we discover more about you and your condition or struggle, we will familiarize you with how we can help, how treatment with us is specific to your healing and what the steps involved will be.

Next, we will provide your first acupuncture treatment. The sensation of acupuncture will vary with each person. Most important to understand is that it does not hurt. You may feel a pressure, dullness or achiness with the needles. This would be normal as the sensation of your body’s qi. Any tingling or other sensations will quickly fade.

Going by your response to the initial acupuncture treatment, and based on your particular variables, we will continue to discuss and define the continuing treatment plan that is best for you and your body.

Acupuncture for Sugar Grove (IL): What Exactly Can I Treat?

Because acupuncture involves the body’s inner essence and intrinsic power to heal, it has vast applications to relief from pain and discomfort.

Our Sugar Grove patients visit us for acupuncture treatments for a vast range of reasons such as:

  • abdominal pain
  • ADHD
  • osteoarthritis
  • cancer symptoms
  • diabetes
  • fibromyalgia
  • hypertension
  • constipation
  • insomnia
  • musculoskeletal issues

  • back pain

For an ailment such as back pain, we might target acupuncture points including those on the hands, feet and hips. For upper back pain, we might apply acupuncture to the neck, shoulders and upper back.

For shoulder pain, such as chronic discomfort or a past grave injury, acupuncture can help decrease inflammation, improve blood circulation to the affected region and help torn or damaged tissues to heal.

Research has further indicated that for a debilitating condition such as recurrent headaches or migraines, acupuncture can notably lower their frequency among many patients, mainly by activating neural pathways that block and regulate pain.

Our Canonical Chinese Medicine and herbal formulas can also serve you as preventive self-care. Beyond feeling relaxed and vitalized, our Sugar Grove patients often describe improved energy, immunity, digestion and sleep.

Acupuncture can benefit fertility for Sugar Grove patients as well. A balanced monthly menstrual cycle is vital to fertility. If the cycle is imbalanced and ovulation does not occur properly, a woman cannot become pregnant.

Beyond exercise and a healthy diet, fertility can benefit from ensuring that enough good blood and inner energy are flowing through the reproductive system. If you are a woman in Sugar Grove seeking assistance with fertility support, A Touch of Ginger can help balance hormones through acupuncture treatments and Chinese herbal medicine that contribute to a well-regulated menstrual cycle.
