For aches and pains, you may be used to turning to over the counter pain relievers. However, while medication may be effective in alleviating your symptoms temporarily, you may find longer-lasting relief from acupuncture.

Safe, effective, and natural, this holistic practice has become increasingly popular for its calming nature and drug-free approach to treatment. At Reno Health Institute in Reno, NV, our experienced acupuncturist, Dr. Chad Bachman, can help you relieve stress and eliminate pain, naturally.

What is acupuncture?

Acupuncture uses slim, single-use needles to gently puncture areas of the body. Your acupuncturist at our Reno, NV, office will concentrate on the areas that are experiencing pain.

This process is not only effective at reducing aches and pains for most individuals, but it can also lead to the release of endorphins and increase blood flow.

What can acupuncture help with?

At our Reno, NV office, our acupuncturists help you you find relief from a variety of ailments, including migraines, back/neck pain, arthritis, or gastrointestinal problems. Women experiencing severe menstrual cramping or menopause may also find relief from acupuncture.

Is acupuncture painful?

Not at all! While the idea of needles may be intimidating, the acupuncturists at our Reno, NV, office have your comfort in mind for the duration of your treatment. You will feel calm, relaxed, and discomfort-free during your acupuncture session, though some individuals feel a tingling sensation or minor aching.

What happens at my acupuncture appointment?

At our Reno, NV office, your acupuncturist will first review your health history and go over your treatment plan. Depending on the source or level of your pain, we may suggest adding in cupping, massage, or other holistic treatment methods. Your acupuncture session will last around 45 minutes and you can continue with your day as usual.

Let us help you find relief holistically. Call Reno Health Institute in Reno, NV at (775) 507-4740 to make an appointment with your acupuncturist, Chad Bachman.
