It’s Time to Free Yourself from Back Pain

Acupuncture is traditionally used to treat pain. The American College of Physicians (ACP) recommends that doctors and therapists treat acute (lasting less than 4 weeks) or subacute (lasting 4 to 12 weeks) low back pain with non-drug therapies, and acupuncture; a holistic approach to pain management is among the recommendations. 

Acupuncture, a traditional Chinese medicine involves inserting very thin needles through one’s skin, stimulating specific points on the body. The aim is to balance the body and bring harmony back into the body. Acupuncture stimulates specific neurovascular nodes also known as acupuncture points. Acupuncture has little to no side effects and the treatments themselves are relatively pain-free. 

Perfect Union of Body & Mind has a well-known acupuncture therapy clinic in Boca Raton. Our highly experienced and well-trained staff is led by an American board-certified herbalist and licensed acupuncturist, Dr. Yan Ping Xu, Dom, AP
