California Neurohealth: Redwood City Acupuncture Services
Acupuncture Services for Health and Vitality
Elham Khodabandeloo, L.Ac. holds a Masters in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Her deep understanding of the richness of Traditional Chinese Medicine and how it interrelates with modern western medicine, more specifically with the functional neurological and orthopedic rehabilitation services provided by Dr. DeMartini gives our patients an opportunity to reach their maximum health potential.
Acupuncture is an ancient Eastern complete medical system that restores balanced function of the body as a whole. Small needles strategically inserted into the body along specific channels encourage proper blood circulation and facilitate the release of chemical mediators which accelerate healing, reduce pain and resolve inflammation. The results include faster recovery from injuries, a more robust and balance immune response, better stress tolerance as well as improved cognition and other neurological functions. Ultimately all of these benefits result in better health in general and better performance in competition and in life.
The following list includes only a small number of the known benefits acupuncture treatments offer:
- Enables natural insulin management
- Improves breathing capacity and pulmonary function
- Improved regulation of hormones
- Reducing the negative effects of stress
- Mood elevation and cognitive clarity
- Fewer headaches and migraines
- Eliminates swelling and inflammation
- Relieves joint pain from arthritis
- Controls allergy symptoms (sinus swelling, itching, dry eyes)
- Strengthens immune system
- Encourages healthy digestion and regulates elimination
Combat Sports Medicine: Acupuncture for Combat Sports Injuries
Of particular interest to our acupuncturist Elham, is the myriad benefits for combat sports participants. Recovering after a combat sports injury is faster with acupuncture treatments because the sessions improve local healing of injuries, sleep efficiency and enhance immune response to fight off infections. Acupuncture helps calm the mind, the emotions and the body by creating a deeper awareness of internal functions, both weaknesses and strengths. Natural pain fighting hormones reduce or eliminate pain and patients are more equipped to tolerate pain with less stress. Broken bones heal faster when patient recovery plans include acupuncture and herbal medicine. Improved blood circulation also accelerates soft tissue recovery from sprains, strains, tears and bruising.
As a martial artist, Elham knows how important it is to treat injuries sustained during combat sports promptly and properly. However, preventative protocol and post-recovery care help athletes enhance performance and prevent future combat sports injuries from happening. Our preventive care program builds stamina, endurance, strength, balance, agility, timing, speed, reaction time, accuracy of movements and mental focus which are all key factors that enhance performance and optimize overall well-being.
