Acupuncture is a time-tested healing modality that has been used for millennia in the far east. By the strategic placement and manipulation of ultra-fine needles, the acupuncturist promotes the free flow of vital energy throughout the body systems. Though science has yet to uncover how acupuncture works, recent high quality research affirms its effectiveness. Acupuncture can relieve pain, activate the immune system, improve organ function, and bring overall balance to the body and mind. In a private treatment room, the acupuncturist treats the recipient using points in many locations on the body. Some points address overall constitution, while others address specific regions of concern.

>> Acupuncture Q & A
Q: What is acupuncture? A: Acupuncture moves your body into a healing mode with the help of very thin, flexible, and sterile, single-use needles, which are inserted into "acupoints".
Q: What does it feel like? A: For many people, acupuncture looks and feels like serious relaxation. Many patients drift off to sleep during treatment. For others, it feels like a sense of heaviness or dull achiness at the location of the needles. Each person’s experience of needle sensation is slightly different.
Q: How does it work? A: From an Eastern perspective, acupuncture promotes your body’s own self-healing properties to alleviate pain, to treat illness and to promote wellness. Chinese medicine sees the body as a microcosm of nature — a dynamic force constantly striving for balance. Acupuncture taps into that force and reminds the body to restore physiology and promote healing.
From a Western medical perspective, research indicates that acupuncture increases blood circulation and may mimic some of our body’s mechanisms for regulating and alleviating pain.
