Our Central Ohio Acupuncturist

We’re so proud to have Dawn Perry, R.N., L.Ac. working with our team as we continue helping and healing our clients. While approaching 25 years of experience as a registered nurse, Dawn suddenly found herself dealing with debilitating, chronic pain. After trying acupuncture for herself, she knew almost immediately that she wanted to become certified in the practice so that she could provide others with the same life-changing benefits.

Acupuncture in Westerville: What Is It?

When our body’s energy becomes misaligned, it can result in pain, illness, and other health conditions. Acupuncture works with that energy by using specific pressure points to realign its flow.

To those who have never experienced its healing benefits, acupuncture can be an unfamiliar treatment option. However, millions of people have received acupuncture treatments for a wide variety of issues. This form of naturopathic treatment involves inserting very thin needles into the skin at specific points to alleviate pain and treat a wide variety of other conditions. It should be noted that acupuncture is not painful at all; while the treatment is happening, patients find it very easy to relax.

When inserted at various points, depths, and locations, acupuncture needles can realign and rebalance the body’s energy flow. Conditions such as headaches and migraines, blood pressure problems, digestive issues, arthritis pain, and many other medical problems can be treated using acupuncture.

Although needles are used, acupuncture does not hurt. There could be a feeling of pressure at the needle’s insertion, but if you feel pain, you can tell your acupuncturist and she will adjust the placement slightly.

As the acupuncturist inserts the needles, you may feel tenderness, heat, a buzzing sensation, or pressure. This dull feeling may last the entire time the needle is inserted and is a sign that the treatment is tapping into your body’s energy source.

Westerville’s Frequency-Specific Microcurrent Therapy

Frequency-Specific Microcurrent Therapy is used to treat a variety of painful conditions by using a low-level electrical current flow. This painless, non-invasive treatment works with the body’s natural electrical current, producing a small amount of electrical stimulation to a very specific region using a warm moist towel. When applied, this current has been used to treat and reduce inflammation, repair tissue, and reduce pain.

At Westerville Chiropractic and Nutrition, we’ve found that this method treats both physical pain and emotional distress. We’ve seen huge improvements on patients with mental and emotional conditions like post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), experiencing more relief than they had prior to microcurrent treatments.
