Acupuncture Services at Marron Wellness Center
If you've looked at the various services available here at Marron Wellness Center in Shrewsbury NJ, you may have been surprised to see acupuncture listed alongside such cutting-edge technologies as laser therapy. But this ancient technique continues to wield a great deal of therapeutic power.

Our acupuncturist, Kristopher Sparacino, works alongside the other members of our team to incorporate this treatment modality into safe, effective holistic healing plans.
The Astonishing Benefits of Acupuncture
Acupuncture's methods and protocols are based on the principals established by Traditional Chinese Medicine. This discipline maintains that life energy, or chi, flows through the body along major pathways called meridians. When this flow becomes re-routed or blocked, pain, weakness, or disease may result. Ancient acupuncture practitioners established a map of specific points on the body where this flow could be corrected. The insertion of fine needles performs this correction to restore chi and relieve health challenges. Western researchers believe that the needles trigger endorphin production (for natural pain relief) while also helping to correct abnormal nerve signaling.
Acupuncture's extraordinary versatility is one of its greatest advantages. The acupuncture needles can be inserted in a wide variety of patterns and combinations, each addressing different types of health problems. We can use acupuncture to help you with such diverse issues as:
- Chronic neck or back pain
- Headaches and migraines
- Respiratory complaints
- Digestive disorders
- Reproductive system problems
- Mood disorders
- Post-operative pain
What to Expect From a Treatment Session
Acupuncture treatment at Marron Wellness Center is a safe, calming, soothing experience. Your first appointment will include an extensive evaluation, using Traditional Chinese Medicine methods, to analyze your current state of health and the source of any symptoms you may be experiencing. We may then proceed with your first acupuncture treatment. You shouldn't feel any pain from the needles, which are extremely thin and shallowly inserted. Even if you feel significantly better within your first few sessions, we may recommend a complete series of a session to ensure long-lasting results. At the same time, we may be administering chiropractic adjustments, laser therapy, and/or physical therapy to provide with the most thorough relief possible. You may find that acupuncture continues to play an important role in your life as a primary care solution for many different conditions.

Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese medicine used to alleviate pain and promote overall health. Acupuncture uses needles placed along invisible meridians that run throughout the body. Today, acupuncturists also use lasers, magnets and electric pulses in addition to needles. Each meridian point has a specific meaning and can unblock and repair meridians and channels with vital energy or chi. Through the stimulation of the meridians, an acupuncturist is able to restore balance and ergo health to the patient.
Acupuncture is used to treat a wide range of health problems, such as
- Persistent lower back pain
- Chronic tension-type headaches and migraines
- Neck pain
- Joint pain
- Postoperative pain
- Depression and anxiety
Acupuncture takes a holistic approach to understanding normal function and disease processes, and focuses as much on the prevention of illness as on the treatment.
