The purpose of this page is to provide information for those searching for the phrase acupuncture in Omaha NE. The practice of acupuncture is the stimulation of certain acupuncture points on the human body for the purpose of controlling and regulating the flow and balance of energy in the body. The practice includes the techniques of piercing the skin by inserting needles and point stimulation by the use of acupressure, electrical, mechanical, thermal or traditional therapeutic means.
Chinese medicine views the human body as a complete organic entity that interconnects the external phenomenal world and the physical bodily structure through a series of natural laws. Chinese medicine focuses attention on the patient rather than on the disease, grouping together signs and symptoms of a disease and synthesizing them, until a clear picture appears that provides a diagnosis of the person as a whole.

Dr. Jennifer Howard offers acupuncture in Omaha NE using advanced technology in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with acupuncture by using AcuGraph as a part of an integrated approach to your healthcare! The AcuGraph Digital Meridian Imaging is a computerized tool used to analyze and document the energetic status of the acupuncture meridians. The AcuGraph system allows Dr. Jennifer Howard to measure and analyze the energy balance of each acupuncture meridian. Armed with this information, Dr. Jennifer Howard can make better-informed decisions about your condition, and provide the best treatment possible.
Within the AcuGraph system each patient will be given a P.I.E. or Personal Integrated Energetics chart. Each wedge of the circle represents one meridian or pathway. Those show in green are balanced and functioning properly. Colors that do not extend to the edge of the circle identify and classify your meridian energy imbalances.
Your P.I.E. score includes a complete analysis of all of your meridian pathways and reflects the overall health of your meridian energy system. A perfect score of 100 reflects complete balance and unimpeded flow of your Qi or energy. A lower score means there are various imbalances that you and Dr. Howard should address.
