Acupuncture removes blocks and opens the body to the opportunity to do what it was designed to do: Heal Itself!
We are newly offering individual acupuncture sessions as well if you prefer or require an acupuncture treatment that takes place in a private setting.
Acupuncture is a comprehensive healing system that dates back over 4,000 years. Acupuncture works with the natural energy of your body. Periodically, we develop blockages and imbalances in the body caused by physical or emotional trauma. If the physical or emotional traumas are not dealt with, they can manifest into disease. Once the acupuncturist determines the root of the problem, whether physical or emotional, the treatment will be customized to balance that patient’s health. Acupuncture treatment encourages the body to restore its own balance on all levels.
Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years as a medicine that addresses the entire body. It is highly effective at addressing not only acute illness or injury, but chronic conditions and symptoms that are a result of multiple systems being imbalanced or ill. While it is currently renowned for treating pain and recovery from injury, it is also used to treat or help with the following. The following is a partial list of symptoms, diseases and conditions that are recognized by the NCCAOM (National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine) and World Health Organization (WHO) to be treated effectively by acupuncture and Chinese herbs:
Acupuncture is generally painless. The needles are called “filiform” meaning “hairlike.” You may feel a slight sensation upon insertion of the needles and throughout the treatment you may have different sensations like dullness, achiness, heaviness or warmth. Most patients fall asleep during their treatments, so clearly none of the sensations are uncomfortable.
This depends on the condition that you are coming in for and the rate in which your body responds to the treatments. It also may depend on how long you’ve had the condition. Acute conditions will generally respond faster, while chronic conditions may take several weeks or longer to respond. In general, we recommend that any new patient expect to come in once a week for at least a month or two. It is not uncommon to begin seeing changes in your overall health within your first couple of treatments. We work with each patient individually to find a treatment plan that works for him or her. We also work together with other healthcare providers to co-manage the patient’s overall health.
My husband and I were trying to get pregnant starting in November with no luck. I was in the peak of stressful nursing school that caused a huge imbalance in my hormones. I came to Dewayne a few months before school ended to work on stress and anxiety before we could focus on fertility. School was completed in May and Dewayne then focused on rebalancing my hormones. I could tell there was a “balance” or “evenness’” to my body with a lack of better words immediately after the first session. Within two months we conceived our baby boy. 🙂
My experience with DeWayne Baugus can be summed up as miraculous. I learned of his battlefield acupuncture technique after my son prompted me to find someone here who performed it. My oldest son is an injured veteran who learned of this from the VA. I had extreme difficulty walking. My right foot was nailed to the floor, and I sometimes just could not move. I had bouts with incontinence and my sleep was restless at best. I came to my first appointment at Maplebrook Acupuncture clinic in my motorized wheelchair where I had been for almost a year. After the first treatment, I came home and parked in the garage and walked across the garage to the kitchen door. I had not done that in over a year. By the time I saw DeWayne, I had sought treatment from neurosurgeons, neurologists, and orthopedic surgeons and never got any relief from their treatments. DeWayne’s first question to me was, what do you want to get from this therapy. I responded, just let me walk. If I am out for a long walk, I still use my walker, but I have not been in my wheelchair since my first treatment. My sleep and incontinence have improved, and I rest much better. I am not 100% yet but I continue to improve with each treatment. DeWayne is compassionate and has excellent diagnostic skills. He is a great listener and prays for my healing. I cannot describe how grateful I am for the treatments I have received. Sincerely
Maplebrook acupuncture has been an extremely positive experience and helped me in multiple ways. I originally went for fertility help when trying to get pregnant naturally at age 40. Many doctors told me it would be unlikely due to my age, but after 4 months of treatment and diet changes, I was able to get pregnant naturally. I continued treatments throughout my pregnancy and Dr. Dewayne was able to help with nausea, headaches, muscle aches, and pains without having to take medication. It was very important to me to take limited medication during my pregnancy and Dr. Dewayne made that possible. After having the baby my milk came in slowly and Dr. Dewayne was able to increase my milk supply by double after my first treatment and then increased again after my second treatment. In addition to helping me with fertility, the treatments have also helped with anxiety and everyday stress. I believe anyone can benefit from the treatments and would highly recommend trying for any ailment or health issue.
1 year ago I was having a lot of pain in my right leg! I had gone to the Dr., of course, he said it was arthritis. What is arthritis? A lot of pain and limping around. Friends told me that I needed to go to DeWayne at Maplebrook Acupuncture Clinic, he could help me! Well, my opinion of that was very low! Said I didn’t believe in that! Well, I was really mistaken! I no longer have any pain in my legs or really anywhere else in my body! Understand, I am 77 years old! Climb stairs every day! No pain! So don’t make a judgement on something you know nothing about. I praise this man and his wife every day! Awesome people! Love them!!
I absolutely love this place! DeWayne and Ildi are two of the sweetest people I have met in my life. I have suffered from severe chronic pain in my back for several years. I have had all kinds of procedures and injections done during that time span. None of it really helped. When I came into Maplebrook, I wasn't sure what to expect. In the middle of my first treatment, DeWayne asked me to stand. My pain level dropped from a 10 to a 3. That had never happened in 8 years dealing with medical doctors. Now, I leave the clinic pain-free and that is lasting 24 hours and beyond. If you knew what I've dealt with, you would call that a miracle. Nothing else has ever given me this kind of relief. I am so thankful to the people of Maplebrook for giving me hope, hope that was all but gone from my life. If you are having issues such as mine, don't wait. This is the place you need to be. You won't regret it.
