Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine Services at Sweere Clinic
At Sweere Clinic, Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine services are used to address many conditions. Common examples include: musculoskeletal pain, insomnia, anxiety, depression, attention deficit disorder, hypothyroidism, and rheumatoid arthritis. Additionally, they can help with the side effects of cancer treatments, fatigue, and brain fog.
Acupuncture is recommended for various pain conditions by the CDC and the American College of Physicians and is increasingly being used as a first-line treatment for pain.
How Acupuncture Works
Acupuncture is a whole-body medicine that uses ultra-fine needles to stimulate prescribed points. Practitioners may also use mild heat, manual pressure, or gentle electrical current.
Acupuncture does not focus on treating only symptoms. It looks at the whole picture to treat the underlying causes of imbalance. By stimulating the body to heal itself, acupuncture can reduce the need for drugs and offers a conservative alternative to orthopedic surgery and other riskier therapies.
Chinese Herbal Medicine
Your practitioner may also prescribe Chinese herbal formulas. These formulas have been developed over thousands of years and are customized to the unique needs of each individual patient.
The Herbal Dispensary at NWHSU is the largest dispensary in the Midwest, stocking over 800 bulk, raw herbs, granulated powders in single herbs and formulas, teapills, tablets, and tinctures.
Quality control is of utmost importance when sourcing herbal medicine. The dispensary only uses trusted suppliers that batch-test each herb for quality, are pesticide-free, and species-correct products that are cGMP certified.
