What is acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a part of traditional Chinese medicine, using fine needles that your provider inserts into your skin at specific points to treat pain. The procedure can also reduce stress and treat several different health conditions.

At Integrated Counseling and Wellness, Dr. Gutierrez first identifies the root cause of your pain. She then offers acupuncture to support your spine and boost your overall health. She uses AcuGraph technology, which measures electrical skin resistance to provide a real-time view of what is happening in your acupuncture channels. These channels provide energy to your muscle cells that come from electrical signaling in your nervous system. 

Your provider uses a graph to measure your outcome with cutting-edge technology to create the best results for your health and wellness.

Acupuncture can relieve issues like migraine, low back pain, neck pain, and more.

What is the acupuncture process like?

Before receiving acupuncture, you meet with your provider for a medical history review and to discuss your health and wellness goals. They explain how the acupuncture process works.

To begin your procedure, you first lie on a padded table. Dr. Gutierrez then places tiny needles at various depths into targeted areas of your body. Most patients don’t feel the insertion of needles. You may receive 5-20 needles, depending on your condition. 

Once the needle is inserted, your provider may gently move or twirl them or apply heat or electrical pulses to prompt your brain to release chemicals. The treatment reduces pain, regulates hormones, and promotes positive influences on your body’s system.


What can I expect after acupuncture?

Acupuncture can promote relaxation, which means better sleep, digestion, and feeling better overall. The procedure can also surface buried feelings and underlying causes of health issues.

It can also help others feel energetic. Very few ever report side effects from acupuncture.
