Acupuncture is a safe and effective treatment for many common conditions.

As a certified acupuncturist, Dr. Roguski uses this ancient Chinese treatment to help address a number of different conditions.

 

Although this is not a complete list of what acupuncture treats, here are some common examples of cases when acupuncture is used for treatment:

  • Migraines

  • Sinus headaches

  • Neck pain

  • Back pain

  • Shoulder pain

  • Tennis Elbow

  • Skin conditions

  • Fatigue

  • Anxiety

  • Anti-aging/facial wrinkle reduction

  • And more…

The main goal of acupuncture is to balance the body’s energy (Qi) by using the body’s own energy pathways. Ancient Chinese physicians discovered an energy network just under the skin’s surface that flows throughout the body. This energy network intertwines with the body’s major systems and works in unison with them. Put simply, when this energy network is disturbed either by blockages or miscommunication, the body suffers pain and dysfunction. The goal of acupuncture is to restore natural flow within the body’s energy network, resulting in the body’s ability to heal itself.

The human body’s energy network, clinically termed as Meridian Channels, contains twelve different Meridians and eight extraordinary meridians. When you and Dr. Roguski decide to use acupuncture in your treatment plan, she will first find where the blockage and dysfunctions lie in your meridians. She uses your pulse and tongue as a guide to find these areas and once she finds them, she utilizes various oriental techniques on the acupoints in order to restore harmony within the entire energy network, thereby reducing and ultimately ridding your malady.

How many treatments will I need?

​Chronic problems may demand more treatments than acute issues. The average number of treatments that patients receive is between 4 and 16, at the rate of two per week. Dr. Roguski encourages her patients to be patient in the healing process, and always keep in mind that the longer you have had a problem, the longer it takes to make it go away. It is recommended each person have acupuncture monthly, and at the very least during the change of seasons.
