What Is Acupuncture and How Does it Work?

As a practice of medicine, acupuncture can be traced back over 2000 years. In fact the oldest textbook we use was written in the time period of 475-221 BC. The practice of acupuncture involves the use of ultra-thin, sterile, hair-like, needles which are inserted into specific points in the body.

There are hundreds of these points located all over the body. The points are chosen based on their ability to affect the body's processes, such as organ function, and improve the circulation of blood, energy, and other body substances, as well as treat illnesses.

The United States National Institute of Health and the World Health Organization now recognize acupuncture as a very useful tool in treating many diseases.

We now also offer Laser Acupuncture and electro-stim acupuncture as a painless alternative for people who are afraid of needles and for children. This is an exciting new therapy method that complements traditional acupuncture very well.

Additionally, we do Dry Needling Acupuncture here as well.  Feel free to read more about it on our Dry Needling page.
