Acupuncture

WHAT IS ACUPUNCTURE – Acupuncture is the insertion of micro-fine needles into points along pathways on the surface of the body called meridians. These points and meridians have a direct relationship with internal organ systems and specific areas of the body. Stimulation of acupuncture points with needles has the effect of moving Qi or energy, promoting blood circulation and activating the body’s healing mechanisms.

From a biomedical perspective, acupuncture activates your body’s nervous system and circulatory system, which regulates the production, secretion and transportation of various molecules, including endorphins, neurotransmitters and hormones. By regulating your body’s physiological functions, a state of homeostasis is restored within the body.

Our clinic uses sterilized, single-use, stainless steel needles that are so thin the diameter is often compared to that of a human hair. Insertion is relatively painless and most patients describe the needling sensation as one of warmth, dullness, pressure, heaviness or tingling.

  • Relief and resolution of acute and chronic pain

Special Note – While acupuncture can be very helpful for biomedical problems, our clinic does not provide primary care medicine nor do we establish biomedical diagnoses. If you have a serious medical issue, your primary care physician is the best resource to make an accurate diagnosis. We are happy to provide complementary care and/or referrals, but we do not accept primary care responsibility for serious medical conditions.
