What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a Chinese healing modality that utilizes needles to stimulate specific points on the body. It is generally painless and has been shown to effectively treat  a wide variety of conditions. Nutritional recommendations and herbal medicine are often combined with Acupuncture treatments for optimal results.

 

Treatment with Chinese Medicine works well for acute as well as chronic conditions. In Acute cases of Colds, flu or Urinary Tract Infections, for example, the condition will be resolved within a few days.  Many Patients receive regular treatments, usually once every 1-2 weeks, to help manage chronic conditions.  Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine works very well in conditions which require immune system regulation and balancing. Chronic pain, fatigue, autoimmune conditions and depression/anxiety benefit greatly from the systemic balancing effect created by Chinese Medical care.

What does an Acupuncturist do?
