Dr. Steven Jacob is excited about introducing you to Acupuncture. For over 4,000 years, this healing therapy has been a key component of Eastern medicine.
At Health Options Center for Wellness, it’s a core treatment for patients who want alternative health strategies. Combined with Herbal Medicine and Bodywork, Acupuncture has played a vital role in helping our patients achieve health, wellness, and whole-body balance.
An Acupuncturist uses strategically placed needles to promote healing. If the concept inspires hypodermic needle flashbacks, you should know that it’s not like that at all. An Acupuncturist’s needles are hair-thin, which minimizes the potential for discomfort. For a recognizable context, consider that five to ten Acupuncture needles are fine enough to fit inside a hypodermic needle’s hollow tip.
As Dr. Jacob inserts a needle, he skillfully moves the tip beyond the nerves in the skin’s superficial layer. The needle’s size and location limit its ability to cause painful sensations. When he places a needle into certain body points, you should never experience a sharp painful sensation.
Envisioning the Body as a Black Box
Chinese medicine sees the body as a black box that prevents a practitioner from seeing what’s inside. Once the doctor completes his evaluation, he makes informed assumptions about what’s going on inside the box. He then decides which modalities will promote healing.
Dr. Jacob chooses Acupuncture points according to how they support the body with tonifying, removing, or reducing benefits. Herbal Medicine and Bodywork also play an important role in overall treatment and healing.
For thousands of years, Chinese practitioners have used traditional techniques and relied on a holistic approach to health. Dr. Jacob is proud to share these ancient traditions with his Connecticut patients.
