Acupuncture for Everyone

I recently returned from a 4-day conference on Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine. The presenters were a combination of Eastern and Western physicians, MD’s, Ph.D.’s, and DAOM’s with varying specialties, who all mentioned the same thing in their own words: “Acupuncture is not a religion. You don’t have to believe in order for it to work.”

From my perspective, I would say that is fairly obvious; but then I think back to many conversations with patients, friends, even family members who have all made statements at various times suggesting that they just don’t “believe” in it, and therefore are apprehensive to try it for any reason.  Well, here are the most recent (in the past month) headlines from published clinical trials performed at major universities throughout the world:

  • Acupuncture Plus Herbs Relieve Perimenopause Insomnia
  • Acupuncture Lowers Anxiety and Pain After Mastectomy
  • Acupuncture Improves Circulation
  • Acupuncture and Herbs Relieve Arthritis and Diabetes
  • Acupuncture Benefits Sleep, Reduces Stress
  • Acupuncture Reduces Periodontitis Bone Loss
  • Acupuncture and Herbs Raise IVF Live Birth Rate
  • Acupuncture Relieves Sinus Allergies

None of these trials included a “believer vs. non-believer” category, yet all showed improvement.  I think it is safe to say that acupuncture benefits are very real and clearly show positive clinical effects. So, in honor of this great revelation, we are offering an unprecedented Acupuncture Special throughout the month of April… 50% discount on all Acupuncture services and *packages!!!!  This promotion is offered in our newsletter for weight loss patients only; however, those of you that mention this blog post to our staff are eligible for this promotion too.

The researchers have removed the “belief” barrier; and now we are removing the “price” barrier for anyone interested in trying acupuncture to relieve their symptoms, improve health, or just simply de-stress and relax.  Please call the office to schedule your acupuncture services at 847-681-8821.  This is a very limited special and an excellent opportunity for anyone interested in what acupuncture can do.  Most ailments require a short series of treatments for relief or benefit, typically 3-12 treatments, over the course of 3-12 weeks.  With package rates so low, I highly recommend a series of visits for any health issue.

I look forward to seeing you soon.

Be Well,

Dr. Ryan Lombardo

* Limited to 1 package per person, largest package is 12 treatments.
