For over a decade, Dr. Ferguson has successfully integrated acupuncture into her medical practice to promote healing, relieve pain and improve function for her patients. The treatment involves insertion of tiny needles at acupuncture points along the channels to stimulate the energy circulation, remove blocks to energy flow and restore energetic balance and organ function.
Scientific research has found that needling the acupuncture points stimulates the nervous system to release chemicals in the muscles, spinal cord and brain, which reduce pain, improve energy, and stimulate the body's natural healing abilities.
The World Health Organization recognizes the use of acupuncture in the treatment of a wide range of medical problems, including digestive disorders (gastritis, irritable bowel, constipation and diarrhea), respiratory disorders (sinusitis, bronchitis, asthma), and neurological and muscular disorders (headaches, neuritis, frozen shoulder, tendonitis, low back pain, osteoarthritis). Dr Ferguson has found acupuncture especially helpful in treating women's health issues such as PMS, perimenopause and menopause symptoms.
