Acupuncture is one of the oldest and most popular systems of medicine to treat a wide range of health conditions. The acupuncture treatment system originated in China several thousand years ago.
It has withstood the rigors of time and scientific evolution, and has been accepted worldwide over the centuries. Steve Drugan is a board certified acupuncturist providing this unique treatment system to patients in Columbus, OH and surrounding locations.
Headaches and Migraines
In comparison to western medicine, acupuncture has been found to provide significant benefits in preventing and treating headaches. It is particularly effective in improving the quality of life of patients suffering from frequent headaches and migraines. The procedure involves the insertion of fine needles into the targeted points on the body, followed by gentle stimulation of the needles.
This enables improvement of blood flow in the affected area to provide relief from headache. In case of migraines, the needle points are placed in different locations, especially in the lower body. This allows the acupuncturist to avoid dilating the blood vessels and provide relief from migraines in a safe and effective manner.
Various research studies and overwhelming patient feedback has established the effectiveness of acupuncture in providing relief from different types of pain. Chronic pains and aches such as neck pain, lower back pain, and osteoarthritis related knee pain can be treated with acupuncture.
The procedure is designed to stimulate blood circulation in the affected areas, which allows the strained muscles, nerves, and tissue to relax. Many patients who have not found relief from other treatment systems report sustainable pain relief with acupuncture.
Acupuncture is known to increase fertility by providing relief from mental and physical stress, enhancing blood circulation to the reproductive organs and promoting balance in the endocrine system. The goal of this treatment system is not just to help a woman attain pregnancy, but to help her stay pregnant and deliver a healthy baby.
When blood flow to the uterus and ovaries is improved, it supports the chances of the egg receiving adequate nourishment and being carried to term. Acupuncturist Steve Drugan receives patients from Columbus, OH and nearby areas.
Any kind of imbalance in the body can lead to autoimmune disorders. This internal imbalance can disrupt the flow of vital energy through the body. Acupuncture can help to restore the body’s balance and treat the root of the disorder, while specifically addressing symptoms that are unique to a patient.
Acupuncture can cause physical response in certain areas of the brain, nerve cells, and the pituitary gland. This influences blood pressure, body temperature, and the immune system.
Regulating Digestive Function
Acupuncture is an effective solution to improve the body’s digestive function. It helps the digestive energy to go in the right direction, which is from the mouth downward through the complete system to the anus.
Nausea, gastric reflux, or constipation can cause a hindrance to this directional movement. Acupuncture can redirect the energy in its natural direction to restore a healthy digestive system.
