Indianapolis Chiropractor Completes Medical Acupuncture Training Certification

INDIANAPOLIS, IN--(Marketwire - Aug 2, 2011) - Dr. David Bax, an Indianapolis chiropractor with Dr. David Bax Injury & Rehabilitation Center, has received his certification in medical acupuncture. Acupuncture is non-invasive, natural treatment that is used to relieve chronic pain, including fibromyalgia and sciatica. Medical acupuncture uses Electro Meridian Imaging to electronically measure and map the body's meridians, also known as energy channels. These measurements are used to calculate the health of the body's organs and pinpoint specific pressure points along the body to target for pain relief and healing. Dr. Bax studied under Dr. John Amaro, a leading practitioner of acupuncture.

Dr. David Bax, a chiropractor with Dr. David Bax Injury & Rehabilitation Center in Indianapolis, announced that he has received his certification in medical acupuncture.

Medical acupuncture is based on the traditional Chinese healing art of using thin needles to stimulate pressure points in the body. Today, Western acupuncture uses a low-level laser targeted at pressure points to reduce pain, enhance wellness and improve immune function. Acupuncture may be used to treat patients suffering from fibromyalgia, sciatica and other forms of chronic pain.

"Acupuncture is an important complement to chiropractic care," said Dr. Bax. "It is a natural way to relieve pain without relying on prescription painkillers. Acupuncture treatments also promote internal healing and the natural release of endorphins, the body's 'feel-good' hormone."

Dr. Bax studied acupuncture under Dr. John Amaro. Dr. Amaro has taught more chiropractors about acupuncture than any other doctor. He received his certification in acupuncture from the Columbia Institute of Chiropractic in 1973 and received additional certifications from the Waseda Acupuncture College in Tokyo, Japan and the Chinese Medical Institute in Kowloon, China.

"Studying under Dr. Amaro was a true privilege," said Dr. Bax. "Dr. Amaro has been practicing acupuncture for over thirty-five years, has published over 500 articles on acupuncture, and has given more than 1,000 educational symposiums worldwide. Dr. Amaro is a true pioneer in the practice of acupuncture, and by studying under him, I gained a deep understanding of this important practice."

Dr. Bax uses Electro Meridian Imaging (EMI) to electronically measure and map the body's meridians, also known as energy channels.

"Electro Meridian Imaging truly revolutionized the practice of acupuncture," said Dr. Bax. "By precisely measuring energy channels using the latest digital software and electronic technology, I can complete the entire diagnostic exam in just minutes. I am also able to send patients home with a printed, graphic copy of their results."

Dr. Bax uses the EMI readouts to diagnose and treat patients along the meridians of their body using laser acupuncture. While the ancient Chinese used thin needles to target pressure points, Western acupuncture uses a low-level laser that does not harm the skin. During a treatment, the laser stimulates the pressure point. In response, cells undergo biochemical, structural and electrochemical changes that are designed to relieve pain and improve organ function.

In addition to chiropractic care and acupuncture, Dr. Bax also offers physical therapy and massage therapy at his Indianapolis chiropractic offices. Prospective patients who wish to learn more about Dr. Bax's practice and acupuncture treatments can visit the website, http://thebaxdoctor.com.
