Rhonda Hogan, Specialist Using Acupuncture for Neuropathy
For more than 20 years, Rhonda has been treating people with neuropathy. Acupuncture helps with blood flow which is a significant cause of the degeneration. She uses both traditional acupuncture and a new Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM) treatment to treat blood flow thus improving numbness and tingling.
Where Acupuncture Excels Treating Neuropathy
Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years and has virtually no side effects. It’s 100% safe, uses single use, sterile needles and even creates a pleasant feeling in many patients. In New jersey, acupuncturists are regulated and licensed by the Board of Medical Examiners, the same agency that oversees and licenses physicians. Acupuncturists undergo 2 years (full time) of training and education. In addition to their acupuncture training, required subjects include a deep understanding of anatomy, clean needle handling, disease identification and much more.
“I feel connected the the ground again” L.L.
“I can feel my gas pedal again” B.K.
Indirect (distal) treatment location is one of the reasons that people mis-understand acupuncture. Maybe they have heel pain and the acupuncturist is treating their calf muscles. Perhaps they have elbow pain and the treatment is to the forearm. Needles away from your neuropathic location are part of a broader, overall treatment of the person. The body is an amazing, interconnected system of mechanical, chemical and electrical parts. It is logical that a problem in one part of the body can cause a symptom in another. Wiggle your fingers and watch your forearm. Watch peoples calf while they walk. Another myth is that needles are inserted into Nerves. They are inserted into muscles.
