“Let my no fault / personal injury protection insurance experts take care of the details, while you and I focus on your recovery.”  Rob Vena, Licensed Acupuncturist, Point Pleasant, NJ

Being involved and injured in an automobile accident can be an extremely stressful situation, and working with insurance companies can be very confusing and aggravating. If you are covered by no fault or personal injury protection (PIP) insurance, your insurance company will most likely pay for a variety of different medical treatments to help with your recovery; including acupuncture treatments. Such coverage is provided regardless of who was at fault in the accident.

What Is No Fault Insurance?

No fault insurance is a special type of coverage that is seen more and more frequently today as a type of auto insurance coverage. Simply put, with no fault insurance, it does not matter who was “at fault” in the accident. No fault auto insurance covers the cost of consultations as well as treatments and cuts out the need to go through the other party’s insurance provider in order to be compensated or reimbursed for medical expenses. No fault insurance saves everyone time because coverage usually kicks in before fault is even determined in most cases. It also saves you money and allows you to get the treatment you need right away.

In some cases, and when necessary, no fault insurance will cover acupuncture treatments for up to five times a week. Not only does no fault insurance save time and allow you to get the help you need, but no fault acupuncture treatments can decrease your recovery time by speeding up the healing process. Acupuncture is proven to be effective in reducing pain and stress, and this can ultimately help ease your suffering throughout the healing process.

A no fault acupuncturist can provide a wide variety of different acupuncture techniques for an array of different conditions ranging from minor to severe. He/she will determine the ideal course of treatment required for each individual case.

Acupuncture can help treat various types of accident-related injuries. It can help relieve pain and swelling while promoting healing and dramatically reduce stress levels. Bruises, broken bones, head trauma, whiplash, back and spine injuries, and muscle damage are just a few of the many conditions that can be helped with acupuncture.

When To See An Acupuncturist

If you are covered by no fault insurance, you may be eligible to reap the benefits of acupuncture treatment with no out-of-pocket expense. Low back pain, neck pain, postoperative pain, and post-traumatic stress disorder can all benefit from regular acupuncture treatments. If you are experiencing mild to severe pain from an auto accident or surgery following an accident, several visits a week can be a viable alternative to using potentially harmful and addictive pain medications to manage your pain. One added bonus, is that acupuncture has none of the potentially harmful side-effects of medications.

Sometimes it can take a few days following an accident for soreness to arise. Even if it’s just a minor fender-bender, you can still end up with low back, shoulder or neck pain due to your spine being impacted. Along with physical injuries, accidents also result in increased levels of stress. There are so many aspects of an accident that you may have to deal with in the aftermath. Severe accidents can even result in the development of PTSD, which in its most severe form, can be debilitating. No fault Acupuncture treatments can be effective for all of these conditions.

  • Blood flow: Any type of injury from a bruise to a slipped disc in your back can benefit from improved blood flow. Everything your body needs for recovery and healing is found in the blood, so boosting blood flow to the area of injury increases the presence of a plethora of healthy substances. Oxygen in the blood promotes healing and there are also pain-relievers, anti-inflammatory substances, and even substances that prevent infection in your blood.
  • Natural pain relief: Pain after an accident comes in all shapes and sizes. Your body’s natural pain-relievers work faster and provide longer-lasting relief than over-the-counter medications and even some prescription pain-killers. These natural pain-relievers are promoted using acupuncture and acupuncture has no side-effects. It can help with pain ranging from minor to severe, whether it is associated with an injury or surgical procedure.
  • Relaxation and stress-reduction: One of the greatest benefits of no fault acupuncture treatments is significant stress-relief. Stress comes along with any accident, regardless of the severity, and stress can impact your day-to-day life and negatively affect your well-being in surprising ways. Acupuncture stimulates the endocrine system, which generates a feeling of calmness. It also prompts the production of serotonin, which will lift your spirits. You will most likely leave your no fault acupuncturist’s office feeling pain-free and relaxed.

Mindfulness for Life Balance / Acupuncture at the Jersey Shore

Mindfulness: A mental state achieved by focusing one’s awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting one’s feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations.

Being mindful may very well be the best way to find balance in your life. When you are mindful, you live in the present moment and can enjoy life as it unfolds before you.

Although mindfulness is often associated with meditation, there are other ways for you to be mindful in everyday life:

Just Stop: Take time every now to stop and smell the roses. Stop whatever you are doing, look around, and simply enjoy the moment.

Be Childlike in Nature: The world is filled with wonders. But, for some reason, we fail to recognize those wonders as we grow older and busier with  our daily lives. Try to experience life through the eyes of a child. What did you love to do when you were a child? What was your favorite pastime? What did you want to be when you grew up? How close have you come to being who you really want to be? Make time to do those things you love and bask in the magic of the moment!

Be Mindful of What You Say: Our words can have magical powers. But, they can have the power of ‘white magic’ or ‘black magic’. They can be healing or harmful. You should think before you speak. Be mindful of your words, and remember; Once you’ve said it, you can’t take it back!

Mindful Meals: The next time you sit down for a meal, think about every bite and try to thoroughly enjoy it. Turn off the TV, put down the cellphone, and just try to be present in the moment and enjoy the meal and company you are with.

Mindful Breathing: Stop for a moment and pay attention to your breathing. Are you breathing properly? Is your breathing too shallow, too fast, too slow? Are you taking in enough oxygen? Or, are you so stressed-out that your chest and lungs are constricted and tight? Take a deep breath and fill your lungs with fresh air, and when you exhale, imagine you are cleansing yourself of all the toxins and impurities that have built-up in your system over over a lifetime. Try this exercise when you get into bed at night; Lie on your back, place one hand on your belly and the other on your chest. As you inhale and exhale, the hand on your belly should rise and fall, not the hand on your chest. This is proper breathing.

Pay Attention to the Most Boring & Ordinary Tasks: We get so caught up in our daily routines. We tend to operate on autopilot when performing everyday tasks such as brushing our teeth, doing the dishes, driving, standing in line, or taking a shower. Try to be mindful of the world around you while performing these activities and don’t be locked into your own thoughts or daydreams all the time.

Break Routines: It can be difficult to be mindful when you do the same things day after day. Try breaking your routines every now and then. Try something new. Take a different route to work or stop off in a different coffee shop tomorrow. Say good morning to that person you pass on the street every day. Remember, change is good. To change is to evolve. To remain the same is to stagnate. There is always something new and exciting to see and be mindful of when you make changes in your life.

Mindful Meditation: Try to find 20 minutes for mindful meditation each day. Find one spot and make it your daily meditation space. Make it your sacred spot… your shrine. Sit or lie down comfortably and start by following your breath. Just focus on your breathing… on the way it feels as it enters your nose and lungs, and then back out again. Each time your mind wanders (and it will wander!), reel it back in by returning to the breath. Remember, meditation is a practice. And, it is not easy for anyone. Just keep trying, and you will soon reap the benefits of mindfulness.

Acupuncture for Anxiety at the Jersey Shore

Acupuncture for Anxiety in Englewood, NJ

Acupuncture for Anxiety in Pt Pleasant, NJ

Anxiety is a disabling condition that can be experienced by persons of all ages.

Modern medical treatment for anxiety might include therapy sessions and the administration of pharmaceutical drugs.

Acupuncture is a holistic, healing modality that can be used separate from or in conjunction with mainstream medical treatments; without any of the possibly harmful side-effects of prescription drugs.

The Chinese have been using acupuncture for thousands of years, and today the scientific evidence for the use of this ancient healing modality to treat anxiety disorders is mounting.

As an acupuncturist who takes a special interest in the treatment of anxiety disorders, I have helped many of my patients, both young and old, to find relief from this condition.

Most patients find the acupuncture experience to be very relaxing and pain-free. In fact, many find the process to be so calming that they are able to fall asleep right on the treatment table during the session.

If you are interested in receiving acupuncture treatments and would like to know whether or not your insurance covers acupuncture services, call (201) 357-0904. My insurance experts will be happy to verify your coverage prior to your setting up an appointment.  If you are not covered for acupuncture services, or have no insurance coverage, there are other payment options available, so please give us a call.
