Acupuncture is a 5000 year old treatment method that at its core believes the body has the potential to heal itself.

Through the use of very fine needles inserted in specific points in the body, information is released at the molecular level to affect other areas within the system. Researchers have discovered the systemic release of endorphins (the body's natural form of painkillers) after the insertion of acupuncture needles to reduce pain and facilitate pain management.A common analogy has to do with water flowing through a stream being like energy circulating in the human body. As a dam can block and prevent the flow of water so too can the energy block in the body resulting in incomplete vital energy to an area and leading to what we refer to as Symptoms. Acupuncture needles help to remove these blockages (or dams) and allow the energy to flow and restore health to the compromised region of the body.Over the past decade, acupuncture has gained wide acceptance and importance in the effective treatment of various ailments some of which include:
  • Neuromuscular ailments (arthritis, sprains and strains, post-surgical pain, etc.)
  • Headaches
  • Seasonal allergies
  • Sleeping irregularities (insomnia, restless sleep)
  • Mental health problems (anxiety and depression)
  • Female specific disorders (pre and post menopausal symptoms, etc.)
  • Other
