Acupuncture
Back

Acupuncture is a health practice and component of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), a complete health care system approach to treating and preventing disease. Acupuncturists work with the body’s energy that flows along well-defined pathways called meridians. Disease and health disorders are viewed as an imbalance of energy. 

How can Acupuncture help me?
For patients who are looking for alternative methods of pain relief without taking medication in a completely natural way, acupuncture is an excellent form of treatment. Treatments are safe and painless and completely drug free. Some symptoms that Acupuncture can provide relief with are:

How does Acupuncture work?
During Acupuncture, very thin needles are inserted at specific points which normalized the body’s flow. The presence of these needles can stimulate nerves, muscles, organs, connective tissue, and the immune system. That’s how this safe and non-invasive therapy can boost your body’s natural painkillers, blood flow and ability to heal. 

How long does it take for treatment to start showing results?
As with any alternate method of treatment, results can vary from patient to patient depending on several different factors. Each individual responds to treatment differently. The severity of the condition also affects the timelines of response to the treatment. Many patients however, begin seeing rapid changes in their overall quality of sleep, digestion, pain and stress relief.
