What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture, which has its origins dating back over 5000 years ago, is a synergy of procedures involving the stimulation of anatomical locations on or in the skin by a variety of techniques through the use of ultra-thin mini needles to reduce pain and regulate various internal processes. By stimulating various acupuncture points, the energy of the body can be unblocked and brought into a state of balance. As a result, energy can move freely throughout the body, promoting pain-free health, well-being and vitality.

Acupuncture can help eliminate pain/inflammation, strengthen your immune system, reduce the harmful effects of stress, treat addictions, promote fertility, and much more by encouraging your body to naturally heal itself. It does this by re-establishing the balance within your body and eliminating harmful stagnation by encouraging the healthy flow of energy, blood, & oxygen. On a medical level, science has proven that acupuncture has the ability to stimulate the release of hormones, endorphins, and neurotransmitters systemically to help reduce pain and inflammation, increase circulation, relax the body, and improve mood.

The ancient Chinese learned over five millennia ago that many illnesses and health-related conditions could be corrected or prevented naturally using various “pressure points” to unblock stagnat energy & promote proper circulation of Blood & Oxygen within the body. Acupuncture is a proven, safe and drug-free alternative for healing and strengthening your mind, body, and spirit. By combining ancient wisdom and medical expertise, Acupuncture can treat the root cause of your condition, not just your symptoms, so that you can get the results you want!
