IRVING – This month Lumin Health will add an acupuncture service line, which will be available at Lumin ConvenientCARE in Flower Mound and SpineCARE locations in Dallas and Irving.
“Our goal is to help you enjoy a life that’s as pain-free as possible by utilizing a treatment plan that’s individualized for each patient’s unique needs. We’re excited to now offer acupuncture in Irving, Dallas and Flower Mound. Acupuncture is an effective, safe, drug-free treatment that can play an important role in eliminating both acute and chronic pain,” Samantha Traylor, a Lumin Health chiropractor and acupuncturist, stated in a press release.
Acupuncture often is used in conjunction with other therapies and as an alternative to pain medication, because it quickly reduces inflammation and pain, and relaxes muscles and increases circulation, which can shorten recovery time. In addition, it stimulates the body’s natural healing process, promotes emotional and physical well-being and boosts endocrine and immune function.
The classic theory of acupuncture is that it works by removing the blockage in the energy channels, or meridians, in the body. These meridians flow like rivers of energy along regular pathways, nourishing the body’s tissues and organs and restoring its natural balance and energy flow.
Scientifically speaking, acupuncture stimulates the nervous system by releasing biochemicals in the brain, spinal cord and muscles. This relieves pain and can influence the body’s internal regulation and involuntary bodily functions.
According to the World Health Organization and the National Institutes of Health, acupuncture has been proven effective in the treatment of a wide variety of medical conditions. Some conditions the Lumin Health acupuncture program is designed to help treat include: arthritis, osteoarthritis, back/neck pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, degenerative discs, fibromyalgia, joint pain, migraines/headaches, myofascial pain, sciatica, postoperative pain, TMJ, tennis elbow, and sports/work/auto injuries.
