I recently developed sciatica/lower back pain. I have had four treatments with Dr. Steve and they have helped enormously! In addition to treating my back pain, I’ve noticed that my general mood is much calmer and happier since I began treatment which is a tremendous benefit as I have struggled with depression over the years.
Fine, sterile needles are placed at specific locations on the arms, legs, and head to stimulate the peripheral and central nervous system to regulate pain, inflammation, and various internal disorders such as poor digestion, insomnia, stress and anxiety.
Specifically, acupuncture has a profound effect on the various physiological systems by exciting or calming the “fight or flight” and “rest and digest” wings of the Autonomic Nervous System.
The classical style of acupuncture that Steve practices utilizes points on the arms/hands (below the elbows), legs/feet (below the knees), and head/ears. This allows the patient to experience acupuncture treatments without having to disrobe or wear a gown.
