Acupuncture


Acupuncture is an effective, safe, gentle & drug free treatment for a wide variety of conditions.  Acupuncture is a complementary therapy that originated in China and has been around for over 2,500 years.

Acupuncture is a technique used to balance the flow of energy, also known as chi, or qi. Qi is thought to flow through pathways in your body. The goal of acupuncture is to remove energy blockages and balance your energy flow, which helps to regulate your emotional, mental, and physical health.

Acupuncture stimulates specific points along these pathways using thin, solid metal needles to penetrate the skin. Acupuncture needles have a round edge so they don’t cut the skin. Stimulating these places on the body influences your nerves, muscles, and connective tissue.

Acupuncture treats a broad spectrum of health issues, utilizing the body’s own natural healing by helping to re-balance the body through adjustments to the body’s energy system. It is a safe, effective, and drug free option for your health and wellness.
