What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture involves placing tiny needles in certain areas of the body that correspond to an aspect of the body that needs to heal. It is a very calming and relaxing treatment that will allow the person to self-heal. It has been shown through scientific research to be an impactful form of medicine for many conditions. Acupuncture is often used as adjunctive care to pharmaceuticals, surgeries, and other treatments. Acupuncure can treat conditions by itself or even help reduce side effects. There is very little pain with acupuncture and many people will fall asleep during the process. We often combine it with other treatments, for instance physical adjustments or Tui Na.
