Acupuncture

Acupuncture is the healing practice of needle therapy to treat pain and prevent disease.

During an acupuncture treatment, very thin needles are inserted into specific points on the body. In Chinese Medicine, these points are called jie which are also known as neural nodes.

Acupuncture heals the body by stimulating these nodes which affect both the central and peripheral nervous systems.

These nervous system signals trigger the midbrain to release the body’s internal chemicals such as endorphins and enkephalins, both of which have pain-relieving properties and also improve immune function.

Acupuncture is most commonly known to treat pain conditions like low-back pain, neck pain, knee pain and headaches, but several thousands of years of documented evidence proves its effectiveness as the solution for most internal diseases.

Each treatment course with acupuncture will be different, but the effects are typically cumulative. Our treatment plans are based on what is best for your exact ailment.

Our style of acupuncture involves placing hair-thin needles away from a symptomatic site, which is also referred to as distal needling. For example, knee pain could be treated by placing the needles away from the knee and pain-relief is typically felt within moments.

When needles are placed in dense areas of nerve tissue, they signal the brain to release natural pain killing chemicals which stimulate blood flow to a targeted area. This very often accomplishes instantaneous relief, but more importantly it starts the healing process of that body region to prevent symptoms from ever coming back.
