Acupuncture is the practice of inserting sterile, thin needles which are then activated through gentle and specific movements of the practitioner’s hands or with electrical stimulation.

Acupuncture is part of the ancient practice of Traditional Chinese medicine. Traditional Chinese medicine practitioners believe the human body has more than 2,000 acupuncture points connected by pathways or meridians. These pathways create an energy flow (Qi, pronounced “chee”) through the body that is responsible for overall health. Disruption of the energy flow can cause disease. By applying acupuncture to certain points, it is thought to improve the flow of Qi, thereby improving health.

Studies have shown that acupuncture is effective for a variety of conditions.

  • How can acupuncture help?

    Acupuncture has been used for centuries to enhance your body’s natural healing response by stimulating acupressure points throughout the body. This increases your body’s ability to resist or overcome illnesses and conditions by correcting imbalances. It also prompts your body to produce natural chemicals that decrease or eliminate painful sensations.Research conducted over decades shows that acupuncture can relieve pain, reduce the body’s natural stress response, restore hormonal balance, and effectively treat a wide variety of medical conditions related to prolonged stress.
