What Is Acupuncture?

 

Traditional Chinese Medicine evolved over thousands of years and is widely practiced throughout the world.  In contrast to typical western medicine, traditional Chinese medicine practitioners view the body as a series of meridians, energies, and body systems that lead to a quite different treatment regimen than western medicine. 

Acupuncture is the most well-known and often practiced of these treatment methods.  

Acupuncture involves the insertion of very thin needles into the skin at specific places on your body.  

Don't worry, they are rarely painful.  Many patients report not feeling the needles at all.  That is because they are so thin and inserted expertly to avoid discomfort.

How Does Acupuncture Work?

Once inserted, the needles work to improve the flow of chi, or life energy, through the body’s various channels or meridians. The result is accelerated healing, reduction of pain, and improvement of many body systems. 

Many patients report falling asleep during the treatment or sleeping very well the night of the treatment.

Acupuncture and the other traditional Chinese medicine treatments complement chiropractic care and massage therapy or can be utilized on their own.
