Why Use Acupuncture?
In the hands of a well trained practitioner like Chesapeake AIM founder Dr. Jinell Smithmyer, Acupuncture has many broader applications beyond pain.
For example, Acupuncture has been shown to improve digestion and sleep disorders, quell anxiety and depression, balance reproductive and hormone function, and regulate biomarkers related to autoimmune diseases – even if the problem has been chronic.
Initial Consultation Required
An initial consultation with Dr. Smithmyer is required to find out if you are a candidate for Acupuncture. If you are determined to be a candidate, we can perform your first procedure the same day.
Quick & Painless
Acupuncture is quick and painless, you’re in and out of the office in 30 minutes.
The number of procedures you will need will vary based on your specific condition, the amount of time you’ve had it, etc.
The Acupuncture process is repeated 2-5 times a week until maximum improvement is seen. Then a maintenance regimen is often prescribed to prevent recurrence. Maintenance may be as little as 1-2 times per month.
Absence Of Symptoms
Acupuncture can and often results in a complete absence of symptoms, even in severe pain conditions that have been present for years.
