Acupuncture is a safe, effective and drug free therapy that can address many common ailments. It is part of a holistic health care system that includes herbal medicine, massage, manual therapies such as cupping and gua sha, moxibustion (a warming therapy), meditation and relaxation techniques and nutritional therapy. It has been practiced for thousands of years, and is the only system of medicine that has been practiced consistently for that long a period of time.
Acupuncture promotes natural healing, it is based on the self healing potential of the body. Fine, sterile needles are placed at specific points on the body, causing a decrease in inflammation, increase in circulation, stimulation of the immune system and relief of muscle spasms. Acupuncture can help with almost any health condition, everything from arthritis to the common cold.
During a treatment patients feel relaxed and may fall asleep. Most patients report feeling a reduction of their symptoms immediately after the first treatment. All treatments are individualized to you; your acupuncturist will recommend a treatment plan based on your symptoms and constitution.
