It's Virtually Pain-Free: While acupuncture does use needles, you don't need to be afraid of pain from them. Thanks to their small size, many patients do not even feel the needles at all.
Effective Alternative Treatment: Instead of introducing new chemicals into your body, acupuncture works with your body's natural healing system.
Stimulation of Natural Healing: It is believed that acupuncture stimulates the central nervous system - which results in the release of natural chemicals into the brain, spinal cord, and muscles.
Minimal Risk of Side Effects: Because acupuncture is a natural and holistic healing approach, there are minimal side effects involved. Even these side effects are rarely serious and often only partially negative.
