Acupuncture is a medical system that has been used to diagnose, treat, and prevent illness for over 2000 years. It can treat acute or chronic ailments, relieve pain, assist in recuperation, and boost the immune system used solely, or in conjunction with other treatments.
Most people find acupuncture treatments wonderfully relaxing, and in fact, many patients fall asleep on the table.
Acupuncture uses tiny, hair-thin, flexible needles that are inserted at specific points on the body. Points are accessing channels or meridians that connect to the organs, muscles, and systems of the body. We can disturb the balance of our body energy through trauma, poor diet, medications, stress, and many other factors. Acupuncture works to correct the imbalance by stimulating the proper systems and functions of our body.
The length and frequency of visits varies for each individual. A series of visits is usually necessary to get to the root of the condition. Please talk to your practitioner about your specific condition.
