What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture has been practiced for Centuries
Acupuncture has been practiced for Centuries
Acupuncture is a form of Oriental medicine that has been practiced for centuries.
It’s based on the theory that energy, called chi (pronounced “chee”), flows through and around your body along pathways called meridians.
Acupuncturists believe that illness occurs when something blocks or unbalances your chi. Acupuncture is a way to unblock or influence chi and help it flow back into balance.
Acupuncture Increases Energy
Acupuncture is done by putting very thin needles into your skin at certain points on your body. This is done to influence the energy flow. Sometimes heat, pressure, or mild electrical current is used along with needles.
Relieve Acute and Chronic Pain
People use acupuncture to relieve pain and treat certain health conditions. You can use it by itself or as part of a treatment program. We will design a non-invasive plan to resolve the pain you are experiencing.
Acupuncture - Proven Effective
Acupuncture is proven effective by countless research studies and is a great option for treating pain without turning to prescription drugs or surgery.
