What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is an effective form of health care that has evolved into a complete and holistic medical system. Practitioners of acupuncture and Chinese medicine have used this non-invasive medical system to diagnose and help millions of people get well and stay healthy.
An acupuncturist will place fine, sterile needles at specific acupoints on the body. This activates the body’s Qi and promotes natural healing by enhancing recuperative power, immunity and physical and emotional health. It also can improve overall function and wellbeing. It is a safe, painless and effective way to treat a wide variety of medical problems.
Can acupuncture help me?
When they ask this question, we tell them that just about everyone is a good candidate for acupuncture. As a society, we face consistent and mounting challenges to our health and wellbeing. Our fast-paced, chemical-filled environment inevitably challenges our bodies, minds and spirits, which can fall out of balance easily.
In fact, it is safe to say that acupuncture has been helpful for nearly all mental, emotional and physical disorders.
Whether you suffer from allergies or regular infections and colds, pain due to a sports injury, anxiety because of stress, respiratory and immune health issues, emotional ups and downs, chronic illness of any kind, or if you’re looking for alternative treatments for cancer and other maladies such as digestive issues and irritable bowel syndrome, we can help.
