Acupuncture treatment originated in ancient China, but this practice continues today because of the relief it offers to people with various medical conditions. At Acupuncture is my Life, you can receive a caring acupuncture treatment from Leroy Lott, a New York State-licensed acupuncturist who is also board certified. We have offices in Manhattan and Queens, NY, and we accept most major insurance providers.
An acupuncture treatment involves the placement of very thin needles into various points on a patient's skin. The needles are typically placed into muscles, nerves, and connective tissue to encourage the release of stress- and pain-relief hormones.
Because the release of these hormones yields potential benefits for many people, acupuncture is versatile and beneficial to many people.
For example, one group that often seeks acupuncture treatment is veterans. Due to the experiences they have while on active duty, many veterans suffer from life-changing conditions, such as PTSD and chronic pain. Acupuncture can offer relief from anxiety or injury-related pain. The Veterans Choice Program and Health Net Federal Services allow veterans to receive acupuncture services from our office with no out-ofpocket costs.
Another lesser-known use of acupuncture is as a treatment for people with type-2 diabetes. Studies show that some types of acupuncture positively impact blood glucose levels and a specific type of hemoglobin.
Even autism has been treated with acupuncture. The use of acupuncture for autism spectrum disorders stems from the traditional use of acupuncture to treat neurological conditions.
At Acupuncture is my Life, you can also receive acupuncture treatments to help with many other conditions, including infertility, nausea related to chemotherapy, arthritis and rheumatism, insomnia, and addiction.
Whether you've never had an acupuncture treatment or already regularly enjoy its benefits, Leroy Lott at Acupuncture is my Life wants to help you. Make an appointment at our Manhattan or Queens, NY, offices today by calling 1-888-607-3360.
