I'm often asked, "Tom, how do I find the right acupuncturist?" The problem is that finding the right choice in acupuncture can feel overwhelming. Acupuncture can often seem foreign and present concepts that we in the West haven't been exposed to before, but the good news is if you have some basic questions at your disposal - making the right choice can be much easier.

If you've heard good things about acupuncture and think it might be a treatment that would fit you, where do you start? Finding someone who is nearby with hours and availability that works for your schedule can be a challenge. I'd like to give you a few tips to help you find a great licensed acupuncturist. 

Tip #1
Do they have a great reputation? 

Social media has made it easy to find out all about your practitioner. Look them up online. Do they have a good amount of positive reviews? You want to make sure that others have had a good experience. It will give you some good information in order to make your decision

Tip #2
Do they offer free consultations? 

Consultations are a great way to meet the acupuncturist, see their location and make sure they are the right fit to help you get the results you're looking for. This is a great opportunity for you to ask the acupuncturist questions about your health issues as well as questions about their experience and training

Tip #3
Do they offer other therapies in their office? 

Acupuncture is amazing, but there are many other techniques that the acupuncturist may be able to provide you to help you get better faster. Not only can a good acupuncturist provide techniques like cupping, Gua Sha, Cupping, dietary advice and herbal medicine, but they may be able to offer modern therapies and supplements as well.

Our expertise is in recovery and peak performance and we focus on helping potential patients reach their health goals with custom treatment plans that can include acupuncture, whole body cryotherapy, massage and more. For a free consultation, they can schedule on our website here or they can call us at 443-869-6584. We're happy to help. We want patients to reach their optimal health levels

Hi there. I'm Tom Ingegno, licensed acupuncturist, and owner at Charm City Integrative Health. Now our office has some amazing services and treatments (acupuncture, cryotherapy, local cryo, Live O2) that help knock down inflammation, improve mobility, and reduce pain, but let's say you can't get it in as often as you like? Here are three simple tips you can quickly implement into daily your health routine

Tip Number 1: Stretching 

Sounds simple right well it is and best of all it's free doesn't have to be an elaborate yoga routine or some crazy pretzel looking things just take some time every morning before you even get out of bed and move around. Stretch and twist and bend and get some blood flowing. Studies show that getting the fascia to move can really help reduce inflammation.

Tip Number 2: Magnesium

Studies suggest that over 80% of the population here in the U.S. is deficient magnesium. Supplementing with this either through a pill or Epsom salt baths or sprays or creams will increase the amount of magnesium in your body which has been shown not only to reduce inflammation that helps improve sleep and even in higher doses, helps with bowel movements.

Top Number 3: Turmeric

Turmeric is a spice that's been around than Indian food for thousands of years. It's been used in Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine for just about as long as well.  Now studies show that not only is this a great antioxidant but it helps detoxify the liver and reduce systemic inflammation. There are tons and tons of studies to show that turmeric along with bio pairing or black pepper really can help improve joint mobility and reduce pain.
