Acupuncture is an age old treatment derived from ancient traditional Chinese medicine. Used today as well in the world of Western Medicine, it involves the use of tiny, thin needles that are inserted into the skin and tissues at very specific points. This process is believed to adjust and alter the body’s energy flow into healthier patterns, and is used to treat a wide variety of illnesses and health conditions.
Acupuncture helps to relax tense muscles, increase healthy blood flow to an injury site, promote healing, and increase the release of our bodies’ own natural pain killers. When done properly, acupuncture should be pain free. Most people who are afraid of needles are surprised at how little they feel during a treatment, and are even more surprised with the level of pain relief and relaxation that can be achieved with this powerful therapy.
