What Is Acupuncture and How Does it Work?

Acupuncture is recognized by the United States National Institute of Health and the World Health Organization now as a very useful tool in treating many diseases.

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.  For a modern scientific explanation of acupuncture click here.

We specialize in using multiple methods of acupuncture including classical methods and modern research oriented methods to find the right one for each patient and each health concern.

One of the modern acupuncture methods we use is frequency specific electro-acupuncture.  This is a method of applying very controlled and specific electric frequencies to various acupuncture points in an effort to improve healing.  These specific frequencies can induce a stronger healing response in the body by inducing the body to release or produce more of its own neuro-chemicals or healing chemicals and responses.  It is an extremely power methodology that we have done advanced training to offer.

We also offer Laser 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.
