Acupuncture is one of the modalities of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) . It is a form of treatment that does not involve medication and is safe and effective. Fine needles are inserted in various locations. They balance the nervous system, the two hemispheres of the brain and stimulate blood circulation to promote healing in the targeted areas and the whole body. The person rests with the inserted needles for 30 to 40 minutes. Most people get very relaxed and even fall asleep.
Acupuncture is recognized by the WHO (World Health Organization) and NIH (National Institute of Health to be an effective treatment for a variety of health conditions affecting the whole body including:
- Musculoskeletal Pain and Headaches
- Respiratory Conditions and Infections
- Digestive Issues and Nausea
- Gynecological and Fertility Issues
- Emotional Disorders
- Nerve Pain including Neuropathy
- Electrical Stimulation of the needles can be used to enhance treatment results.
Thank you so much for your wonderful treatments. My menstrual cycles have much improved since the few Acupuncture treatments I had with you. The difference is profound . I cannot thank you enough! M.G.
I have been diagnosed with Diabetes 2. During the last two years I have been on a lot of medication and also medication for my severe Neuropathy in my feet. While the medication calmed down the severity of my pain, I still had a hard time walking. Heidi Day was recommended to me and I went to see her reluctantly. After the first treatment I felt more relief than I had had in months. Getting regular treatments has allowed me to exercise and walk more and experience far less pain. J.A.
As a professional musician I am using my arms a lot. After so many years of playing my instrument I started experiencing numbness and burning pain in both of my arms. I first went for massage, but my pain was still there. A friend had told me about Heidi Day and I decided to see her. Already after the first two times I experienced significant relief. It took two months to be totally pain free. Thank you, Heidi D. M.
I had severe pain in my neck and shoulders for over 15 years. No doctor, specialist, therapy or medication could give me relief. I went to see Heidi Day. After the first treatment I got some relief and after the second treatment complete relief. When the pain starts to flare up I go for a treatment. R.S.
I was born with a stomach ache and a headache. Acupuncture has helped me to control the pain. I have had many heart attacks, usually about every 7 months. Since I get Acupuncture treatments I have not had one in 15 months. Thank you, Heidi B.S.
In April 2014 I injured my left knee which caused my leg to swell to almost twice the normal size. The scans and diagnosis revealed a severe arthritis reaction. Walking became increasingly painful and my right knee started to swell as well. I began acupuncture treatments and herbal supplements at Healing Points Northwest. It was amazing to see how quickly my pain levels dropped and I could exercise more easily once again. Heidi helped me to gradually regain my mobility and stairs became once again much easier to use. Thank you, Heidi R;D.
