Acupuncture uses specific points along the body to promote the natural healing process and relieve pain, while improving mobility, body strength, and comfort. Typically, thin needles are lightly and painlessly inserted into certain areas of the body and held in place for some time.
From a traditional perspective, the needles activate energy points along the body's "meridians", which are paths of energy flow.
Thus, the circulation of healthy energy is re-established to stimulate natural healing. From a modern, scientific perspective, acupuncture has been shown to trigger the release of the body’s natural healing compounds and hormones. Combined, these create a powerful remedy for many common ailments, both physical and emotional. For centuries, acupuncture has been used successfully to treat skeletomuscular pain and damage, imbalances in digestion, circulation, respiration, and even fertility.

Acupuncture is not painful. You may feel a minimal sensation when a very fine sterile needle passes through the skin. Some sensations that are totally common during acupuncture include feelings of heaviness, heat and pressure, though not to the extent of being uncomfortable. A vast majority of patients fall asleep during their treatments!
It really depends on each individual. Most acute issues resolve in five to ten treatments, while more treatments are needed for chronic conditions. Benefits of acupuncture are cumulative. In most cases, patients start to feel a difference after their third treatment; however, in many cases, I’ve seen results after their first treatment. It is very important to follow the treatment plan that is designed for you in order to see results.
We use cupping and electro-stimulation. We also make dietary/nutritional recommendations when necessary.
