De-bunking common myths about acupuncture and why you should give it a try.
Hi! I’m Dr. Jillian Murphy, the naturopath at The Live Well Centre and guess what? I do acupuncture! I spent over 4 years in school studying Chinese Medicine and acupuncture and it’s an integral part of my daily practice. Here are a few misconceptions about acupuncture I hear from patients on a regular basis. I’ll try to set the record straight.
MYTH #1: Acupuncture is only for knee injuries (or back injuries or elbow injuries or -insert joint- injuries).
MYTH #2: Acupuncture is only for acute medical conditions.
MYTH #3: Acupuncture is painful.
MYTH #4: Acupuncture only works if you believe in it.
MYTH #5: Physicians do not endorse acupuncture.
If you are wondering if acupuncture is the next step in your health care, please give our office a call! Dr. Murphy would love to meet you and answer any questions!
