18 Treatmentss ( View All )

Overview

Invented and enjoyed by the Chinese for a long time, meridian therapy is finally being discovered in America as a more natural way of healing the body and relieving pain. Meridian therapy, like acupuncture, uses very fine needles inserted into the skin at specific points to balance the energy of the body while stimulating the connective tissue, muscles, and nerves. At Global Chiropractic in Allen, TX, board-certified chiropractor Dr. Michael Wojnicki is certified in meridian therapy and has used it effectively to help his North Dallas patients for years. Like chiropractic care, the benefits of meridian therapy can be wide ranging and offer more relief than traditional medical treatments. Meridian therapy can be used alone or a complement to other treatments to address your health concerns and improve your overall well-being.

what to expect

Meridian therapy is a healing treatment that uses fine thin needles to relieve pain and treat various conditions. Patients can expect to receive numerous insertions of fine needles throughout their body. Your doctor will feel for points of tension and insert needles where necessary. The insertion may cause slight discomfort, but patients tend to experience immediate relief of pain upon contact. It’s also commonly used in sports therapy to improve range of motion and musculoskeletal pain. Patients schedule regular treatments because of its therapeutic benefits.
