Acupuncture, a treatment involving the insertion of small needles into specific points in the body, is an ancient Chinese Medicine technique that continues to provide safe and effective pain management to patients today.
Dr. Judy Lui, voted Best in the City by Albuquerque The Magazine, provides acupuncture treatments at The Doc Spa in Albuquerque as part of an integrative approach to pain management in patients with chronic pain syndromes or those who cannot safely take analgesics due to pregnancy or sensitivity.
Bridging the Gap of Western and Eastern Medicine
With experience as both a trained practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine and as a licensed medical doctor, Dr. Lui can approach acupuncture as an integrative healing technique as a complement, not an alternative, to traditional medicine.
Benefits of Acupuncture
Acupuncture can be used to treat a range of complaints, including:
- Chronic pain syndromes, including fibromyalgia and migraine headaches
- Pain in joints and muscles
- GYN disorders, including fertility, abnormal menstruation and menopause
- Pregnancy symptoms, including excessive nausea and lower back pain
Acupuncture services are especially beneficial during pregnancy, when a patient may be unable to take prescription drugs. Acupuncture is entirely safe to the patient and the baby, providing worry-free pain management throughout the pregnancy.
Another of the benefits of acupuncture is it has no long-term cumulative effects on the body. Where long-term analgesic use can cause side effects, acupuncture remains entirely safe for repeated use. This makes it especially valuable for people suffering from chronic pain.
Is Acupuncture Right for You?
Acupuncture services from The Doc Spa of Albuquerque can be an excellent addition or alternative to more traditional forms of pain management. However, it is not always the most effective treatment for every patient. Contact us to schedule a consultation with Dr. Lui and identify the best treatment for your individual symptoms and needs.
