Acupuncture at Eastowne, LLC is the acupuncture office of Dr. Lisa Oskardmay. A licensed acupuncturist, certified with the NCCAOM, Dr. Oskardmay understands that many patients want to know what acupuncture treats and how it works. Acupuncture is an ancient healing method that has excellent potential to help patients with various health concerns. Dr. Oskardmay has over 25 years of clinical experience using acupuncture to help patients resolve both acute and chronic conditions.

Acupuncture is the art of healing using the body’s qi. Qi is our body energy and includes blood, nerve impulse, thoughts, lymph, and water. Stagnation of qi flow results in disease, which we interpret as muscle aches and pain, mood shifts, digestive problems, and others. Dr. Oskardmay uses acupuncture to improve qi flow and reduce stagnation to the natural healing forces inherent in each person. She does this through careful examination to determine where blockage and limited qi flow exists, followed by needle and or massage stimulation of involved channels and meridians to support better qi movement.

Dr. Oskardmay has used acupuncture to help thousands of Triangle residents see reduced neck and back pain, shoulder and hand pain, hip and foot aches, and improved health in many other areas.

The World Health Organization lists that acupuncture is a beneficial treatment for many psychological and physiological conditions. Psychological conditions such as depression and anxiety respond to acupuncture treatment. Additionally, Dr. Oskardmay uses ancient therapy to treat patients who have insomnia. Disorders of the eye, ear, nose, and mouth such as post-extraction toothache pain and gastrointestinal conditions such as acute gastritis benefit from acupuncture care. Acupuncture helps neurological disorders, including migraine and trigeminal neuralgia. Other health concerns demonstrated to respond well to acupuncture treatment include respiratory conditions such as acute sinusitis and bronchial asthma. Gynecological problems such as infertility and PMS benefit from Chinese medicine treatment at our office. Additionally, acupuncture helps hypertension and many musculoskeletal aches and pains such as arthritis and fibromyalgia, sciatica, and frozen shoulder. Treatment programs for smoking cessation, opiate withdrawal, and appetite suppression using acupuncture help many people.

Acupuncture is a beneficial healing modality that relieves many painful conditions without the use of drugs or surgery. Chinese Medicine acupuncture works by helping the body access its healing resources called qi. In addition to using acupuncture, Dr. Oskardmay also incorporates massage, chiropractic and exercise, and nutrition so that each patient gets what they need to further the treatment once they get home.
