Acupuncture

Acupuncture is an excellent way to bring pain relief and quality of life back to the patient with chronic ailments, or to provide a holistic cure for acute problems.

How does it work?

We now know that most acupuncture points have specialized nerve bundles that respond to acupuncture therapy. This has beneficial effects at all levels of the nervous system, and these effects lead to better function of all body systems - reducing pain, correcting endocrine function, balancing the immune system, and a wide host of other positive responses. In other words, acupuncture recruits the body's own healing powers to reduce or eliminate a disease.

What conditions can be treated with acupuncture?

  • Arthritis
  • Allergies
  • Digestive System Disorders
  • Weight Loss
  • Headaches / Migraines
  • Ligament Sprains / Tendon Strains
  • Neck / Back / Nerve Pain
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Psychological Disorders
  • Sports Injuries
  • Neurologic Disorders
  • Infertility
  • Immune Health
  • Anxiety
  • Depression

How often and for how long is a patient treated?

This depends on the condition being treated. Initial visit is usually 60 minutes with follow up visits lasting 30-45 minutes for 3-4 weeks on average. From there it is then based on your response to the therapy. Most cases will eventually taper down after the desired effect has been established.

Does it hurt?

Acupuncture needles are thinner, smoother, sharper and more flexible than hypodermic needles. Most do not feel anything going in! Once the needles are in place, they cause a very comfortable, relaxing sensation. Many are surprised how relaxed they are during the treatment!

Our acupuncture service is offered exclusively at our Sea Girt location.

I had a total knee replacement in Sept this year. I chose Soar Therapy for my re-hab. At first I dreaded going in for the appointments and going thru the process which was estimated to be 3 months of therapy. My therapist is Chris Albanese. Well Chris made it a fun experience. We got along…
