Dr. Dan Joseph has been helping Peoria heal with this form of Traditional Chinese Medicine since 2001.


How does acupuncture work?

The medical theory of acupuncture focuses on the notion of qi energy (pronounced “chee”). Qi is said to flow through the body’s meridians or energy pathways. Meridians match specific organs or groups of organs. Unlike conventional Western medicine, traditional Chinese medicine takes the approach that disease is due to an imbalance of this energy’s flow through the meridians.

In an effort to unblock or redirect the flow of energy, acupuncturists shallowly insert ultrathin needles into specific points in the skin tissue. These points are called acupoints.

Does it hurt?

Acupuncture should not cause any discomfort. It’s thought to be reasonably comfortable. You may detect a quick pinch when the needle is inserted, but that sensation will quickly pass. Most patients find acupuncture to be highly relaxing and some fall asleep during treatment. Be sure to tell Dr. Dan if the procedure is uncomfortable for you. He can take steps to ensure your complete comfort.

Are there any risks associated with acupuncture?

Anytime the skin is pierced there is the risk of infection or damage to the structures that lie beneath. Dr. Dan is fully trained in preventing and managing any adverse effects from the needles.
