Relaxing Treatments – Lakewood Ranch Acupuncture and Wellness Center


[music] Acupuncture is an ancient system of
medicine that’s been around thousands of years. It works by balancing the Qi or
the life force of energy and one’s body it flows through all living things
plants have it, trees have it, an animal’s habit and humans have it. And if this Qi
gets out of balance then we have disease in the body. So whether you’ve got too
much Qi not enough Qi stagnation of Qi all these all these issues with qi
can cause imbalance. Acupuncture and Chinese medicine is the fastest growing
health movement in the US and the reason is because plain and simple, it works.
There’s many misconceptions with acupuncture the number one misconception
is people think it’s going to hurt but really it doesn’t the needles are so
small that you can tie them in knots you can make little animal shapes out of
them. It’s not painful at all and Dr. Carter does a very good job of showing
you the needle before she use it and explaining you know it’s about the size
of a cat whisker so when she puts the first couple in now I don’t even
remember feeling it I really didn’t know what to expect but I was amazed and
pleasantly surprised that as soon as I laid down and the the needle started
going in I didn’t notice any pain whatsoever. In fact I’m anticipating
relaxation. I’m anticipating that I’m going to just feel like ah and that’s
exactly what I got. I had never done acupuncture before so I didn’t really know what to expect. I had a lot of preconceived notions about what
acupuncture was and I envisioned pain quite frankly but i found the atmosphere
very pleasant things were very serene when it came to sit down and she had me
on the table and I expected the pain and I didn’t get any. It was very pleasant.
When I left I felt very relaxed. The treatments that Dr. Carter gives me are
amazing. When I first came to Dr. Carter I was I was very skeptical
how bad it wasn’t going to hurt what was going to happen and actually when I
started coming to see her I was pretty amazed it didn’t bother me at all it was
actually to the point where I would sit there and fall asleep. Treatments at Lakewood Ranch Acupuncture and Wellness are very relaxing they’re quite sedating actually. When someone comes in for treatment first we’ll sit down, we’ll chat a little bit, you know find out what’s changed, what hasn’t, what’s
improving, what we still need to work on, and then I will again come up with a
treatment plan and give them a treatment. They’re so relaxed that i would say
about five minutes after i leave their rooms sometimes I hear people snoring. I
am one of those lucky people that does snore during the sessions with Dr.
Carter but I figure if if you’re able to get some with insomnia to snore during a
sessions and obviously she’s doing something right it is really really
powerful [music]
