Acupuncture Simsbury CTLocated just northwest of Bloomfield in Connecticut is the town of Simsbury. With a population just over 23,000 Simsbury is a medium-size town and was incorporated as the 21st town in Connecticut in May of 1670. If you live in Simsbury and are dealing with an illness, chronic pain or a debilitating condition and have tried surgeries and prescription medication with little or no progress, consider Traditional Chinese Medicine as a form of treatment. Under the guidance of licensed acupuncturists Marc Gerstein, Acupuncture Associates in Bloomfield has been providing acupuncture, cupping therapy, acupressure and moxibustion for many patients who prefer an alternative to hospitals, surgery and medication.

Acupuncture Therapy

For thousands of years acupuncture has been used to treat many debilitating conditions and illnesses including asthma, depression, addiction, chronic back pain and gastrointestinal disorders. The practice of acupuncture involves the gentle insertion of very fine needles into specific points on the body. To date 71 meridians (or channels) have been identified in the human body. The theory behind acupuncture is that when energy, or Qi, is blocked in a meridian it causes an imbalance in the body and this can lead to illness and pain. Acupuncture attempts to unblock this clog so the body can return to its natural balance and internal harmony. Though there are people in medicine who remain skeptical about the success of acupuncture, recent studies clearly indicate that the therapy does cause a stimulus or detectable change in the body that produces a response. It is now widely believed that acupuncture points can stimulate the central nervous system (the brain and spinal cord) and in turn help release pain-relieving chemicals into the muscles, spinal cord and brain.

Traditional Chinese Medicine

In addition to acupuncture treatments and therapy, Acupuncture Associates also offer a wide variety of treatments that fall under the broad category of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Some of the adjunct therapies performed at Acupuncture Associates includes moxibustion, Gua Sha, cupping, abdominal massage and herbal medicines. More affordable than surgery and with lesser side effects that drug therapy, Traditional Chinese Medicine has been in practice for thousands of years and many people use this alternative therapy to treat everything from chronic back pain to addictions.
