How Acupuncture Can Be Effective in Treating Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis Hashimoto thyroiditis is the most common thyroid disease and cause of hypothyroidism
The therapy of acupuncture is inserting hair fine single use needles into particular points on the body to redirect energy and restore health. The acupuncture points are chosen based on palpitation results and the verbal discussion between patient and practitioner. Points are placed over the entire body and work together to send a clear message of healing. Receiving acupuncture is generally painless and relaxing.
At River City Wellness, the techniques of Chinese and Japanese acupuncture are practiced with a focus on the latter. Japanese diagnosis is palpitation based with emphasis on the abdomen, neck, back and meridians. The needles tend to be a bit smaller and the insertion less noticeable.
