I am often asked “What is Acupuncture?” Acupuncture in its simplest form is about an interruption in very precise sites on the body to change its energy patterns.
Sometimes the body needs more energy to a certain area and other times it needs less energy! By placing needles into very specific places (called Acupuncture points or simply Acupoints) the energy to certain areas can be changed! Acupuncture points have been established for many years in Oriental Medicine. These points along energy channels (known as meridians) have been found when interrupted (via small hair-like needles) to show changes in energy to certain organs, regions, blood flow, nerve patterns, etc.
Conditions that can be treated with acupuncture include:
- Thyroid disorders
- Adrenal fatigue
- Migraines & other headaches
- Anxiety & depression
But I know, doesn’t it HURT?? Actually most patients don’t even feel many of the points the needles are inserted into! Some points have some sensation and it is often described differently by every person. We think you’ll find that for the relief you will receive, there really is no pain! You can certainly watch some of our video testimonials to see what patients say. We also have video available as to how we differ from most chiropractors and many other acupuncture practitioners as our technique is more eastern than what is available in this area! Come experience why “deep needle techniques” are more effective and much faster than what is available out there.
