Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a medical treatment derived from ancient Chinese medicine. Thin needles are inserted into different points on the skin stimulating nerves, muscles, and connective tissue to help regulate the flow of energy and help the body come back into balance. Studies have suggested that it can ameliorate acute and chronic pain, stress and anxiety, and tobacco/substance dependence.

The scientific explanation is that the needles inserted at appropriate points stimulate the nervous system to release chemical and hormones that affect the body's internal regulating system.

How does it work?

Acupuncture Treatment

This differs from person to person. For more chronic complex condition 1-2 weekly treatments spread over months may be required. Acute issues may require fewer visits. For health maintenance annual to quarterly visits may be all that is needed.

How many treatments do you need?

Acupuncture close up

Acupuncture needles are made of stainless steel and are extremely thin. Most patients only feel mild discomfort while the needles are being inserted; many feel no pain at all.
