What Is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is one of the oldest healing practices in the world. Its effectiveness has been observed and documented not for years, but for centuries. Research has shown that acupuncture affects regulation of the body's nervous systems, encouraging the release of endorphins and stimulating immune cell function. By doing so, it helps restore the natural energy flow in the body to treat and prevent ailments.

How Is Acupuncture Applied?

During a typical session, an acupuncturist will place fine, sterile needles at specific points along the body's meridian pathways. It is painless and completely safe. The applications eliminate obstructions and balance your energy flow, or Qi (pron. Chee). Once this is done, Qi can freely circulate, extinguishing the pain, or issue, and allowing your body to use its ability to heal itself.

Though it is an effective treatment of pain, it can also relieve your problems with:
  • Fertility
  • Headaches
  • Tobacco Dependence
  • Morning Sickness
  • Allergies
  • Nausea
  • Induction of Labor
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Hypertension
  • Arthritis
  • and many other complaints.
