What Is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is an ancient system of healing used for thousands of years to balance and harmonize life energy or Qi (chee). By balancing and building the body's Qi, acupuncturists are able to correct physical, emotional and stress-related disorders. Acupuncturists focus on determining fundamental causes of a person's pain or disease and treat each person as a mind/body/spirit whole.

How does acupuncture work?

Qi flows through your body along precise pathways called meridians or channels. When the Qi in your body is balanced and flows properly, you are healthy. When the Qi is imbalanced, you experience distress and illness.

Can acupuncture be effective when other treatments have failed? Absolutely!

Each system of medicine has its own areas of greatest effectiveness. Acupuncture often excels in those areas in which conventional medicine comes up short. Chronic disease, pain control, and stress-related disorders are only three of acupuncture's specialties.

Is it painful? Is it safe?

To eliminate the risk of infection, the acupuncture needles used in our clinic are all sterile and disposable.
In most cases, insertion of the needle is performed without discomfort. Usually, the pain of putting an acupuncture needle in is similar to a mosquito bite. Most patients find the treatments very relaxing and rejuvenating and many fall asleep during treatment.

What can acupuncture help?

Acupuncture is widely known to relieve pain, but its range is much broader than pain relief alone. Acupuncture can be helpful in alleviating both chronic and acute conditions and you don't need to have a specific problem to benefit from acupuncture care.

Back and neck pain
Female and male problems
Tingling and numbness
Digestive problems
Fatigue and much more!

Acupuncture treatments can also assist those seeking personal growth and greater inner peace. In addition, acupuncture is excellent for preventative health care and maintenance. Many people receive care on a quarterly basis to tone their body.
