General Acupuncture

Helping people maintain a healthy mind and body is the main goal of acupuncture. At GoldStar Acupuncture we embrace this foundational principle, preferring to provide more minor, preventive care than to see people suffer with more intensive treatments from a problem that was not managed in time. We want to ensure that your mental and physical health is in its optimal state and positively contributing to the health of your entire wellbeing. We are here to brighten your health and pave the way for a brighter life with acupuncture.

Aches & Pain

Aches and pain are part of the body’s alarm system that sends a signal to keep us safe and help the body heal. When pain continues for a long time it can cause changes to your nervous system, which increase sensitivity, frequency, and intensity. General acupuncture is one of the safest and most effective natural ways to address pain. Pain-relieving endorphins and other naturally-occurring biochemicals released during acupuncture help decrease pain, rivaling the strongest prescription analgesic drugs but without undesirable side effects. Acupuncture has been used to treat most pain conditions, including low back pain, nerve pain, hand and knee pain, headache, fibromyalgia, menstrual pain, and others.

Common Respiratory Infections

The respiratory tract (the nose, throat and lungs) is vulnerable to various pathogens that can cause a runny nose, sore throat, cough, watery eyes, sneezing and/or congestion. Left untreated these pathogens can weaken a person’s immune system and give rise to more serious problems, especially in those with already weakened immunity. General acupuncture helps naturally increase the production of beneficial blood cells and biochemicals that not only help inhibit pathogens, but also calm the inflammatory response and improve the immune system’s ability to control infection, shorten recovery time, and prevent future illness.

Digestive Health

Recurring digestive problems such as bloating, acid reflux, and incomplete bowel movements are not normal. They are actually warning signs that your health is in danger and needs immediate attention. Poor gut health causes system wide problems with circulation, metabolism, and immunity and is linked to various chronic health problems, such as allergies, autoimmune disease, arthritis, depression, heart disease, and many more. Acupuncture helps naturally regulate the digestive system and minimize the body’s inflammatory response to help support better digestion and improve absorption of essential nutrients, while also promoting normal bowel movements and warding off long-term disease.

Mental-Emotional Wellbeing

Mental-emotional stress and mood disorders such as depression and anxiety can hinder being productive and enjoying life. Left untreated they can interfere with daily activities such as eating and sleeping. They also often combine to overwhelm the physical body to fuel various illnesses and long-term chronic health problems, including exhaustion, heart disease, weakened immunity, insomnia and even physical pain. Acupuncture is one of the best natural therapies for pacifying and resetting the mind and emotions. It also helps relax the muscles and joints, ease inflammation, pain and other debilitating physical effects of mental-emotional stress, returning both the mind and body to balance.

Preventive Health Tuneup

Serious health problems often begin with common symptoms such as indigestion, stress, anxiety, headaches, low energy, depression, insomnia, or pain. While these may seem like small issues, ignoring these will often set the foundation for more serious illnesses to take a foothold in the future. Acupuncture has been in continuous use for thousands of years to naturally maintain health and vitality. It excels at being able to identify and treat conditions of overall poor health long before they become full blown states of disease. Preserving and tuning up health by averting disease before it begins has long been the preferred method of treatment in acupuncture.

Skin & Hair Health

Poor diet, an erratic lifestyle, stress, medications and other irritants are common factors that often lead to unhealthy skin and hair. But skin and hair problems such as acne, blemishes, hives, eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, dermatitis, alopecia and others often mirror health imbalances going on inside the body. Acupuncture is an effective natural method to treat both existing skin and hair symptoms and root imbalances. It not only helps restore proper respiratory, digestive and immune function at the root of most skin and health problems, but it also helps bring proper blood flow, nutrients, oxygen, and other vital substances to the skin to repair, nourish, & strengthen it, enhance the healing of wounds and scarring, and stimulate hair growth.

Sleep Health

Getting restful sleep may seem like an impossible dream in our non-stop, go-faster, and do-more world. But inadequate sleep impairs memory, mood and alertness, and diminishes the quality of life. Persistent poor sleep also weakens immunity and increases the risk of diabetes, depression, heart disease, and other chronic diseases. Acupuncture offers excellent natural relief from sleep problems that occur as a result of coping with any unfavorable, demanding, or life-changing circumstances. It helps naturally secrete the same pain-reducing, calming, and mood-elevating biochemicals that are discharged during deep sleep, helping release any mental-emotional or physical tension and promote rejuvenating rest.
