Acupuncture with Joseph Maggio, L.Ac.

We provide on-site acupuncture therapy to help patients with a variety of disorders. Acupuncture has become an increasingly popular option for patients who suffer from chronic pain. In fact, the FDA estimates that Americans undergo between 9 and 12 million acupuncture treatments per year – a number that is bound to continue growing, thanks to its safety and effectiveness.

Acupuncture is part of a holistic medical system that dates back anywhere from 2,000-5,000 years ago. It is holistic in that it looks at the mind, body and spirit as one integrated and interdependent whole, as well a system that is deeply connected to the natural universe. It is holistic in that it considers how mental and emotional stress can contribute to physical pain and disease (a known phenomenon in Western Medicine), or how our lack of physical exercise can add to our mental distress. Our food, choice of career, choice of partner, environmental pollution, the way we sleep or other elements of our daily lifestyle are also considered to impact our overall health and must be looked at by a holistic health practitioner.

You may also be wondering how in the world our own system can be so deeply connected to the natural world? One can approach and ponder that question by asking additional questions: How can so many people know that its going to rain based on how their joints feel? Why is it that women’s menstrual cycles can synchronize with the waxing and waning cycles of the moon, something which is approximately 240,000 miles away? And finally, how can we be made up of the same substances as stars — chiefly carbon, nitrogen and oxygen created from stars billions of years ago? If you think you are somehow separate and different from nature’s elements, then you should look again. We are inextricably connected to the greater whole.

In getting a bit deeper into Acupuncture itself, ancient creators of Acupuncture determined that there are multiple sites on the surface of the body where energetic activity (or Qi, pronounced “chee”) is greatest. These are called Acupuncture points (about the diameter of a quarter), which run along channels along the front, side, and back of the body. Inserting thin, fine needles along certain points activates the body’s innate healing capability at deeper levels.

It has been the prime form of medicine, along with Herbalism, for much of Asia for generation after generation. It has been known to treat a wide range of conditions including many pain syndromes, mental challenges, digestive dysfunctions, urinary issues, and allergies, to name a few. Tens of thousands of studies today and many meta-analyses have clinically proven that Acupuncture is indeed effective for many of these issues. In addition, science has shown over the years that we do indeed have electrical energy that circulates through our body and is necessary to life. Lines of bioelectric energy and planes of fascia which are known to wrap all the tissues in the body have also been mapped out and remarkably resemble those same Acupuncture channels discovered long ago.

There’s good reason why many MDs, Chiropractors, and Physical Therapists have chosen to learn what Acupuncturists have long known: Acupuncture works. The US Military, drug detox centers, and Olympic and pro athletes utilize and appreciate the benefits of Acupuncture as well. When you factor in that this form of medicine was created as the chief form of medicine for the civilization that has brought us such hugely influential creations as The Great Wall of China, Kung Fu and Tai Chi, the creation of silk, porcelain, gunpowder, paper and woodblock printing, then you realize that this medical system wasn’t haphazardly created but carefully honed and refined over centuries to bring balance to the body, mind and spirit effectively, enabling those prolific achievements to occur.
