About Our Clearwater Acupuncture Treatments

Acupuncture is a specific modality which has been used for thousands of years to address mental, physical, spiritual and emotional health. It has been used to treat a variety of conditions throughout time, including addiction. During treatment, your acupuncturist will use sterilized, fine needles at specific points on the body to stimulate the nervous system.


How Does Acupuncture Help Addiction Treatment?

Although acupuncture addiction treatment research is somewhat new, it has been used in China since the early 1970s to aid in the withdrawal symptoms of patients who suffer from opioid abuse/addiction. It has been found that inserting and manipulating certain meridian points in the body can actually balance dopamine levels and reduce cortisol in the body, decreasing the withdrawal symptoms and cravings that can occur when kicking an addiction problem. Addiction acupuncture treatment in Clearwater can:


  • Reduce addiction cravings.
