Acupuncture is an ancient, proven healing art that is more than 2,000 years old. The virtually painless, minimally invasive technique involves the insertion of thin, sterilized, disposable needles into specific points on the body to manipulate the flow of energy, restore balance, and remove blockages.

In Oriental medicine, acupuncture points are directly related to specific organs and physiological functions. This principle has been confirmed by numerous research and scientific observations that show a body’s physiological response through the manipulation of specific acupuncture points.

The Benefits of Acupuncture

Acupuncture is very effective for pain management, stroke patients, sleep disorders, panic attacks, anxiety, addictions, and has been found to be extremely useful for people who have not responded to conventional treatment. In fact, acupuncture is often a very effective form of pain management when treated by well-trained practitioners. Acupuncture has broader applications and can provide lasting, long-term relief.
