According to the Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine Practice Act of New Mexico "acupuncture" means the surgical use of needles inserted into and removed from the body and the use of other devices, modalities and procedures at specific locations on the body for the prevention, cure or correction of any disease, illness, injury, pain or other condition by controlling and regulating the flow and balance of energy and function to restore and maintain health. This succinct definition captures brilliantly the full measure and capability of acupuncture. A stunning accomplishment considering it's long history and use. Of particular interest are the words "prevention, cure, or correction of any disease." Here in New Mexico, we are fortunate to have an extremely broad scope of practice among licensed Doctor's of Oriental Medicine in the practice and application of acupuncture. At Mountain Path, we pride ourselves on our deep understanding of the methods and therapeutic effect of acupuncture in the pursuit of treating you for any injury or illness. We seek to ease suffering.
It is important to know that acupuncture represents only one "branch" of the Chinese Medical model. Acupuncture can serve as a stand alone treatment for nearly any injury or illness or can serve as an adjunct to other methods and therapeutic modalities such as herbal medicine, Qigong, or massage. Acupuncture can also enhance and improve the effect of other treatment modalities such as chiropractic and physical therapy treatments. Whether mainstream or alternative medicine methods are utilized, the effect of acupuncture in helping patients achieve their health goals is now undeniable. In fact recent research has demonstrated that patient outcomes are highest when conventional medicine and alternative care, especially acupuncture, are integrated.
At Mountain Path Acupuncture, our goal is to help you achieve your health goals. We want you to be happy, healthy and pain free. Our ability to integrate with your other health care professionals is of paramount importance to us and we are eager to do so in order to help you achieve the highest possible degree of success in your health.
