This therapeutic method is a part of traditional Chinese medicine, and has been used successfully for thousands of years.

There are many reasons why energy blockages can occur, which include (but are not limited to) past physical injuries, various diseases and pathogens, over-medication, too much stress, a poor diet, or even something as simple as a lack of sleep.
An experienced acupuncturist can help manage pain and discomfort all over the body, including neck and back stiffness, anxiety, digestive problems, as well as joint pain. Acupuncture can also reduce symptoms related to headaches, dental pain, menstrual cramps, and even post-operative digestive discomfort or chemotherapy-related nausea.

There are so many reasons to try acupuncture, it’s hard to choose just one!
What does Acupuncture Treat Effectively?
Acupuncture treats pain and discomfort by interacting with energy points, which are located on the exterior of the body. These energy points have been mapped and documented for thousands of years, and are connected to a series of energy pathways that exist within the body called meridians.
After a brief consultation with the acupuncturist at our clinic, a specific series of energy points will be chosen to address your specific set of issues. Those energy points will then accessed through the insertion of very thin needles at specific points on the body, helping to release and properly re-balance energy flow. Your acupuncturist may roll the needle back and forth slightly , they they might use a combination of heat or electrical current on the needle to enhance the process.
Because meridians connect through the entire body, and because those meridians also pass through many of the organs in the body, finding a new balance in the energy flow can treat a variety of different problems, improving certain malfunctioning physiological processes . In this fashion, acupuncture can treat both physical and mental discomfort, which includes muscle stiffness and tension, headaches, tendinitis and arthritis, as well as chronic pain in the joints and other areas. It can also address problems related to fatigue, certain skin conditions, digestive disorders, infertility and even help reduce symptoms of respiratory disorders. Some people have also claimed to have been helped by acupuncture in their quest to ease the cravings associated with quitting smoking!
