Acupuncture is an extremely effective form of treatment that enhances recuperative power and immunity, supports physical and emotional health, and improves overall function and well-being.
Practitioners of acupuncture and Chinese Medicine have used this non-invasive treatment method for thousands of years to help millions of people become and stay healthy. Acupuncture is the insertion of fine needles through the skin at strategic points. It is used to balance the flow of energy, known as qi, that flows through meridians (or pathways) in the body. The insertion of needles into points along the meridians allows that energy flow to re-balance.
Acupuncture forms a key component of traditional Chinese medicine and is most commonly used to treat pain, although it is also used for overall wellness, relief from stress, and a number of other health-related conditions. With its incorporation into Western natural wellness, the acupuncture points serve to stimulate the underlying muscles, nerves and connective tissue to boost the body’s natural painkillers.

Your Acupuncture Session
What to Expect from Your Session?
Your acupuncturist will spend time with you at the beginning of the session to learn more about your health concerns and health history, including medication that you’re currently taking. They will then move on to a series of questions that seek to gain a fuller understanding of your current health, asking questions that may seem unrelated to your most pressing health concerns. This can include your digestion, emotional state, sleeping patterns, and stress levels.
Treatment follows utilizing fine needles to access the qi of the meridians to re-balance the flow of energy in your body.
