Acupuncture is finally gaining the recognition it deserves in Western medicine. Many health conditions can be effectively treated and managed with acupuncture.

Acupuncture has been useful in treating conditions that Western medicine has yet to pinpoint a direct cause. Western medicine relies a great deal on knowing exactly what is causing a disease or condition making it rather difficult to treat conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome, fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue syndrome. For some, acupuncture may be the best alternative to conventional medicine. For others, it may work nicely as a complimentary treatment alongside conventional medicine.

Acupuncture Treatment in Long Beach, CA

Acupuncture is a historic treatment based in Chinese medicine. For over 2500 years acupuncture therapy - during which an acupuncturist will insert thin needles into the body at strategic placements - has been beneficial in reducing pain and promoting overall health and wellness. 

Hudavi Wellness provides acupuncture therapy in Long Beach. Dr. Daniel Choi is a licensed acupuncturist on staff who offers an extensive range of acupuncture therapies, using acupuncture to help mitigate chronic pain, promote weight loss, and reduce stress and tension. Make an appointment for acupuncture therapy in Long Beach or contact us at 562-433-2177 to learn more about this form of therapy.

How We Treat Health Problems with Acupuncture

During an acupuncture appointment, Dr. Choi will place thin, sanitized needles at different points along your body. These points are along the meridians, or the natural lines across your body that are pathways for chi, the life energy that keeps your body in balance. The acupuncture needles release blockages at these points to restore your balance.

These meridians also encompass the muscles, nerves, and connective tissues. The needles stimulate the soft tissues to help treat the discomfort that comes from:

  • Lower Back Pain 
  • Neck Pain
  • Joint Pain
  • Stress 
  • Chemotherapy 
  • Post Operative Pain 
  • Anxiety and Depression 
  • Sleeplessness and Insomnia 
  • Allergies, and More 

Dr. Choi will start by discussing which areas of your body are experiencing tension or pain, and what other health challenges you are facing in order to design acupuncture treatments specific to your needs and target the most important areas of your body.
