Like many acupuncturists, Belinda Roberts learned of her passion for Chinese
medicine through her own journey.
Acupuncture is a powerful aid in bringing about pain relief, mental focus, and a
sense of emotional well-being. Using a combination of specific points on the surface
of a patient’s body, Belinda Roberts of Livelong Acupuncture will customize a
treatment plan to adjust and ultimately balance the flow of energy to and from the
body’s vital organs and along the corresponding channels or meridians. When the
organ systems are in balance, the body can restore its own good health, resolving
many symptoms of imbalance, including those listed below.
What is acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a method of treatment originating from traditional Chinese medical traditions based on influencing the body by inserting needles into specific points of human body, called acupoints. The National Institute of Health describes acupuncture effectiveness as the following: "Results from a number of studies suggest that acupuncture may help ease types of pain that are often chronic such as low-back pain, neck pain, and osteoarthritis/knee pain. It also may help reduce the frequency of tension headaches and prevent migraine headaches. Therefore, acupuncture appears to be a reasonable option for people with chronic pain to consider."
