What is Distal Needle Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is meant to work with your body, not against it. Often when a patient comes in with pain in their body, their assumption is that the needles will be placed in the spot of the pain. But the nerves and muscles in the body do not always rely on localized treatments:

  • The source of the pain may not be where the pain is experienced.
  • Addressing the pain may require treatment points away from the source of the pain.

The former is already well known in medical circles. It is sometimes referred to as “referred pain.” Pain in the leg, for example, may be due to an injury in the lower back – not the leg itself. For the latter, how your blood flows and where your nerves send their impulses is as important to treatment as addressing the pain itself.
Distal Needle Acupuncture, or DNA, is a type of acupuncture treatment that uses areas on the periphery of the limbs (the “distal” region) to treat pains closer to the center of your body. By directing blood flow to your extremities and addressing some of the points responsible for referred pain, we can treat pain with:

  • Fewer Needles
  • Fully Clothed Treatment
  • Effective Results with Instant Relief

All of which make the process preferable depending on the type of pain that is being addressed. Distal Needle Acupuncture is also known as “Balance Method Acupuncture” and “I Ching Acupuncture.”
