Acupuncture in Norwich, CT: Thames Chiropractic & Acupuncture Center
Dr. Christopher Macadam, Dr. David Meder and Dr. Gregory Brunelle
The doctors at Thames Chiropractic & Acupuncture Center in Norwich, CT are certified to perform acupuncture therapy for treatment of patients with chronic and acute pain. Acupuncture can also be effective in treating illnesses, addictions, anxiety, insomnia, digestive problems, menstrual cramps, weight control, infertility and much, much more.
We often use acupuncture as an adjunct therapy to our comprehensive menu of chiropractic and physical therapy services. The proof of acupuncture’s effectiveness is in its longevity. The earliest written record of acupuncture dates back to 200 BCE.
According to Chinese Medicine, energy in our bodies flow through channels called meridians. This energy called Qi, pronounced as “chee”, can get blocked and out of balance, leading to illness. These blockages can be caused by external factors (such as cold, damp weather, physical trauma, etc.) or internal factors (such as stress, unhealthy diets, etc.). The very fine acupuncture needles placed on identified points assist to unblock the Qi and bring us back to balance. There is no western medical explanation for Qi. However, there is over 5,000 years of empirical evidence proving the effectiveness of acupuncture.

Afraid of acupuncture needles? Try our laser acupuncture therapy
A relatively new method of administering acupuncture therapy, laser acupuncture utilizes low-energy laser light beams instead of traditional needles to influence the flow of current at the trigger points. Beyond conventional medicine, this procedure is typically the preferred procedure for the non-invasive treatment of painful conditions including carpal tunnel, tennis elbow, arthritis of the knee and chronic headache in children.
Many patients who are afraid of needles, such as children, prefer the lasers. Generally, this method can also treat the same range of complaints as needle acupuncture.
