Acupuncture is a safe, minimally invasive approach used to treat a wide variety of ailments, including pain, digestive issues, mental/emotional concerns, and reproductive/gynecological problems. It is also used to support general wellbeing and reduce stress.
As one part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), acupuncture is often combined with Chinese herbal medicine and dietary counseling to offer comprehensive treatment tailored to your unique needs.
The practice uses needles slightly larger than hair to stimulate the body’s own electrical system to promote healing. This is based on the theory that everything in the body is interconnected and what happens to one area has the ability to affect another.
The World Health Organization lists acupuncture as an effective treatment option for over 100 conditions varying from knee pain to digestion to fatigue. The treatment itself is virtually painless with very minimal to no side effects.
