Acupuncture is used to treat an array of chronic conditions that seem resistant to conventional medical treatments. Dr. Rodney Dunetz, DAOM, AP, Dipl.Ac., Doctorate in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, Acupuncture Physician (AP), says that "The reason it is so effective at treating so many conditions is that it is all about stimulating the bodies inherent abilities of "Self-Repair". Our bodies are supposed to heal and repair themselves and many times they just need the proper stimulation of the self-regulating and self-repairing mechanisms that reside in each of us.
Acupuncture stimulates beneficial hormonal and enzyme production of our bodies and has "side effects" like reduced stress and better sleep. These also greatly aid the body's natural healing abilities. The great thing is you don't even need to believe in it. Like gravity, it just works!"
With conventional medicine, a visit to the doctor's office may bring physical healing but creates emotional and intellectual stress. In a holistic healing environment like acupuncture, mind and body are healed in harmony with each other. Acupuncture has been especially successful in the treatment of chronic conditions like shoulder and back pain, arthritis, anxiety disorders, allergies and other conditions which defy conventional treatment.
The Dunetz Wellness Center offers a full range of holistic treatments including acupuncture, K-Laser cold laser therapy, pain treatment and relief, nutritional testing, counseling and diet therapy, meditation and stress reduction, herbal therapy, neurolinguistc programming, homeopathy, acupressure, cosmetic acupuncture, Tui-Na Chinese massage, cupping therapy, Qigong and Reiki.
Interestingly, acupuncture is highly effective as a weight loss treatment. Dr. Dunetz says that "...weight loss and many types of behaviors ... are addiction types of disorders. For many people weight loss is about curbing the desire to overeat." To help with weight loss, acupuncture is accompanied by dietary changes, using foods and herbs to correct the imbalances that are causing the weight gain. Recent studies have found that acupuncture is associated with significant reduction in body weight and obesity. It is also shown to have a an impact in reducing appetite.
While, as Dr. Dunetz says, it's not necessary to believe in acupuncture to benefit from it, his patients clearly are believers.
"I have neuropathy from chemotherapy and they bring me relief every time I go. Great group of people who TRULY care about your mind, body and soul."
"I love Dr. Rodney, my son suffers from extreme anxiety and ADD, he can't function, he has been open to the therapy and supplement suggestions. It's really making a difference in his life. He would not go to doctors. And it's been 5 tough years! Dr. Rodney's positive holistic approach and acupuncture, is just what I have been praying for....thanks so much for changing our lives."
Dr. Dunetz and the Center have won numerous awards over the years. In 2016, he was recognized as a Top Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine Physician by the Leading Physicians of the World for the second year in a row.
