Helping Patients Overcome Issues and Live Balanced Lives
Acupuncture with Christina Thomason involves finding the source of your pain or discomfort and using timeless acupuncture techniques to treat various ailments. Thomason uses small needles to carefully puncture the patient’s skin in specific areas. The needles are a tenth of the size of the average sewing needle.
You might worry that the acupuncture process causes pain. Although you might experience a small amount of discomfort, it does not last long, nor is it intense. Acupuncture in Greenville, SC, does not cause serious or lasting pain when professionally executed.
Stress Reduction Through Acupuncture: A Natural Solution
Christina often uses acupuncture to naturally reduce stress in her patients. Some common sources of stress include chronic pain from health conditions or past injuries, emotional distress from failing mental health, or immune system disorders. She often recommends stress reduction through acupuncture for people with:
- Anxiety disorders
- Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
- Other mental health conditions
Certain mental health conditions can take a physical toll on the body. These areas of the body suffer from decreased blood circulation and increased tenseness as a result. Acupuncture improves blood circulation while reducing tension.
Boost Your Immune System with Acupuncture
Your immune system works constantly to prevent illness and protect your body’s internal systems. When something attacks immune system, it works even harder to keep you well. Inevitably, your immune system needs some type of boost so it can continue protecting you.
Acupuncture with Christina Thomason targets several common but vexatious issues, such as:
- Overactive sinuses
- Seasonal allergies
- Cold and flu viruses
- Skin conditions caused by auto-immune problems
Acupuncture therapy can provide your body with the assistance it needs to function at its best. Since blood flow increases to the targeted areas, these areas receive the nutrients and oxygen necessary to heal.
Relieving Back & Joint Pain with Acupuncture
The majority of adults will experience back pain at some point in their lives. When your back struggles to support your body, your chances of suffering joint pain may increase as other joints carry the extra burden. This forces many people to live with chronic pain that can accumulate over time.
Acupuncture targets certain areas of your overstressed musculoskeletal without invasive surgery or addictive medications. As Thomason gently inserts the needles, they encourage better blood flow. In turn, your joints and back release inflammation, allowing pain to leave your body.
