About Acupuncture

     Acupuncture is the oldest method of healing, having been practiced in China for almost three thousand years. It is a technique of diagnosing, treating, and preventing a wide range of illnesses by inserting hair-fine needles into specific points on the body.  

     Acupuncture works by helping the body heal itself. Studies have demonstrated that acupuncture activates deep sensory nerves that stimulate the brain to release natural morphine-like substances called endorphins. Endorphins are our natural pain killers that also activate our relaxation response.

     One of the great advantages of acupuncture is the absence of side effects. Only sterile, disposable needles are used in our facility. Most people feel minimal or no sensation with acupuncture, but if you absolutely can't stand the thought of needles, other methods of treatments are available.
