Contact info: Call 318-459-9125 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for an appointment. Also note: We thought we had the problem solved, but occasionally a caller still gets a "This line is disconnected" message. Don't believe it. Our phone has never been disconnected. Please try again or send us an email and we will reply ASAP. We have recently been advised, after tracing a couple of calls, that the problem is with the caller's line or with their provider or their plan. If you get the"disconnected" message, please call us on our land line (318-459-9125) from another phone. Sorry for the inconvenience.
What to Expect at Acupuncture Shreveport: During an acupuncture treatment your body and mind get very relaxed. You will probably sleep very well the next few nights after your treatment. What you may not notice, but which will nevertheless be happening, are the following:
--More endorphins will be circulating in your bloodstream, leading to an enhanced sense of well-being and a decrease in pain.
--More immune cells will be circulating as well, making it easier for your body to defend itself against the constant onslaught of viral and bacterial invaders.
--Your cells will be receiving more oxygen and vital nutrients because the relaxation that has occurred in your muscles allows better circulation and improved communication throughout your nervous system.
These are only a few of the physiological effects acupuncture is capable of producing, yet they alone would be quite powerful. Long-term changes take place gradually. After a few acupuncture treatments, especially when combined with herbal therapy, most people are amazed by the results.
With or without acupuncture, herbal consultation is available, as are acupressure, cupping, gua sha (manual therapy for pain relief), and microcurrent stimulation.
