Most sleep aids on the market are designed to slow the mind, but this is not treating the root of the problem. Acupuncture treats insomnia in its true nature, typically the result of some other condition. While stress is the common culprit, there are many conditions that can result in the loss of sleep. They usually work in tandem and the combination in which they do so are as diverse as the people they affect.

Reno acupuncture at Path to Wellness is effective because we understand the true nature of insomnia. Different people require different treatments and at Path to Wellness, this is exactly what we provide. The way energy flows through your body is unique. We seek out blockages, allowing it to flow more freely. This allows for better processing of stress and negative energy. Healthy flowing energy creates a healthy body.

Now, we aren’t saying to throw out all those bottles of sleep aids just yet. Instead, come for a session at Path to Wellness, a trusted Reno acupuncture clinic. We will start working on the root causes of your sleep problems. With successful treatments, eventually those prescriptions can become a thing of the past. Many of our patients report significant improvement after their first visit. Imagine you, sleeping soundly in your bed tonight. That would be truly glorious and we are here to help you achieve it.

Reno Acupuncture for Side Effects of DiabetesDiabetes is an illness that plagues some 25.8 million men, women and children across the United States. The side effects of this disease are seemingly countless, but they usually stem from lack of insulin and poor circulation. While learning to live with this disease is a lifelong lesson, there are certain treatments that can create a healthier, longer life.

Acupuncture has been used to treat the symptoms of diabetes for countless generations. As you can imagine, this means that there has been a great deal of time for the process to be maximized. This ancient form of Eastern Medicine has identified points that can actually stimulate the organs in your body to function at a higher level. As a result, studies have been conducted that suggest that acupuncture can improve insulin production.

This is not the only benefit of acupuncture in the treatment of diabetes. One of the most widely acknowledged contributions that acupuncture provides for diabetes patients is the stimulation of increased blood flow. Managing poor circulation is a constant challenge for diabetes sufferers, but with acupuncture many patients report improved circulation, sometimes even after the first visit.

By participating in one of our Reno Acupuncture sessions, you may be taking the first steps of a brand new, healthier lifestyle. Diabetes is a serious disease, but medical breakthroughs are taking place every year. When coupled with the ancient practice of acupuncture, Western medicine is given a serious advantage. At Path to Wellness, we value every opportunity to help our patients live the life they love.

file9851296299449 Reno AcupuncturistWith acupuncture being an ancient technique, many different processes have emerged over time. However, at Path to Wellness, we have a process that we strongly believe works the best for ensuring that our customers are receiving the appropriate treatment.

Our process always starts with a discussion. This is time that we have set aside for you to talk with our Reno acupuncturist about what has been going on in your life, what your concerns are and the effectiveness of previous treatments. From there we gain the information to create a game plan for helping you achieve your wellness goals.

Next, we typically begin treatment. Depending on your concerns, we may have you lay on you back or stomach. Considering that different points have different effects, laying on your back or stomach may change with each visit. Once we have located the appropriate acupoints, we insert hair-thin needles. For most people, this is completely painless as these are not like larger injection needles that one would find in a doctor’s office.

After the needles are in place, we allow you to relax for a while. This gives the needles time to stimulate energy flow in your body. This energy is known as Qi (pronounced “chee”). When Qi is flowing properly, the body is better able to heal itself. Western medicine also notes that acupuncture needles stimulate the nervous system to release important neurotransmitters and hormones.

Once we remove the needles we will conduct any other treatments necessary. This can include treatments like moxibustion or cupping, depending on your individual concerns. For most people this would be the conclusion of the session. Afterwards, many describe feeling a reduction in pain and being more relaxed. It is a very gentle, safe process that works wonders for promoting wellness.
