When most think of us think of acupuncture, we conjure images of hair-thin needles protruding from various points throughout the body-the nose, the ears, the belly. New York City acupuncturist Bruce Mandelbaum takes a different approach, one he calls local point acupuncture.Unlock and release tension through acupuncture
Local point acupuncture is especially advantageous for soft tissue-based muscular conditions. Piriformis syndrome? Local point acupuncture can help. Achilles tendinitis? Limited range of motion? Shoulder tightness? Again, your body may benefit from the application of local point acupuncture.
As Bruce, a reputable sports acupuncturist, explains, your body can become injured or strained due to physical activity or adding stress to the underlying muscles. By applying needles to specific points locally along this injury or strain, acupuncture can physically unlock that source of tension, releasing the muscle from a tense or hardened state.
Local point acupuncture isn't necessarily a drawn out treatment. In fact, a single session can yield significant results, while two can offer respite from muscle pain that's existed for years. Of course, depending on the injury or condition, the number of acupuncture treatments required may vary.
