Millions of people have found relief with acupuncture. With a 3,000-year history, acupuncture has been proven to be effective in treating chronic ailments, and in pain management.

Acupuncture is a safe, painless way to treat:

  • Sports injuries, fibromyalgia, headaches, neck, back, elbow, shoulder and knee pain
  • ​Inflammation in the body
  • Smoking cessation
  • Allergies, asthma and other respiratory problems
  • Gynecological problems like infertility and PMS

  • Pregnant women with maintenance treatments
  • Depression, anxiety, insomnia and stress
  • And many more physical, emotional and neurological issues

Acupuncture in a nutshell:
There are numerous styles of acupuncture, but the common thread among them is that they all help establish the proper flow of blood circulation in the body.

Imbalances within the body can occur due to injury, stress, or disease. Inversely, injury, stress, or disease can occur from imbalances in the body.

Acupuncture stimulates the proper "natural" healing neuropeptides, such as endorphins, enkelphins, and serotonin. The combination of points used are very important in telling the brain where to direct the circulation, in order to promote healing.

Why do we use needles?

Our bodies have energy! MRIs use energy, as do EKGs. Our hearts conduct electrical impulses. We have ionic, positive and negative reactions constantly occurring in our bodies. The metal needles are inserted into chosen acupuncture points to help conduct and redirect the ionic reaction to certain areas of the body.

Rule of thumb for effective acupuncture treatments:
The ideal approach to illness is to begin treatment as soon as possible! The sooner you seek help, the faster you will heal. For longstanding illnesses, weekly treatments may be required for several months in order to have a curative effect.
