Acupuncture utilizes hair thin needles that are inserted into specific points along the body’s meridians to activate stagnant energy, or qi. Through the careful and strategic placement of these needles, the practitioner brings the patient’s qi back into balance, activating the healing process. Some of acupuncture’s many benefits include the reduction headache pain, back pain, insomnia, PMS, emotional disturbances, and even the side effects of chemotherapy.
Before each session our practitioners will ask you a series of questions to better understand your needs and to create a more targeted session. Acupuncture treats all disease from the root – not just the symptoms, and works with your body’s natural process to provide long-term, consistent healing. Many patients benefit from multiple acupuncture sessions depending on how they react to the first treatment, and multiple visits are often recommended for acute care issues such as injuries or chronic conditions. Because Chinese medicine recognizes the mind-body-spirit connection, our practitioners take a holistic approach to your healing and can address a multitude of symptoms at once, bringing your whole system back into balance.
