Acupuncture is an alternative form of medicine that utilizes small, thin needles that are gently inserted into carefully placed points on the body. Dr. Gurevich, being an appropriately trained and educated classical Chinese practitioner, utilizes clean need techniques as well as single-use sterilized needles to practice safely and efficiently. The use of gentle needle insertion is a noninvasive technique to help create a more systemic and internal influence in the body. Utilizing the carefully prescribed acupuncture points on the body stimulates the body’s innate ability to balance itself and recovery from illness.
Acupuncture is very useful when dealing with chronic digestive disorders. It is an effective and painless way of releasing the stagnation within the digestive system which usually leads to pain. In Chinese medicine, all pain is viewed as stagnation. There is a stuck amount of pain "qi" or energy in the body and this stuck energy causes pain. Acupuncture allows one to move that stuck energy and that leads to a reduction of pain symptoms. It can also be used to harmonize the intestinal system and restore order and function to the digestive organs.
Acupuncture can also be used to treat conditions such as chronic and acute myofascial pain, depression and anxiety, autoimmune diseases, high blood pressure, allergies and asthma, digestive difficulties, and women’s issues at all stages of life.
In a typical office visit, Dr. Gurevich will carefully listen to your case to help provide a personalized acupuncture point prescription to help guide your body back to better functioning alignment. After virtually painless, gentle needle insertion, all you have to do it lay and relax deeply and let the ancient Chinese techniques do the work. These points guide your body to help move through pain, disease, depression, and misalignment and towards recovery and better health.
