Acupuncture is a means of stimulating your body’s capacity to heal.  Hair thin needles are placed in locations that can help your body overcome the stresses it may currently be having difficulty healing.  Acupuncture uses your body’s own natural healing mechanisms, so there is no need to worry about side effects or risks of complications from treatment.

Acupuncture is a time-tested technique of stimulating and directing the body’s innate capacity to heal itself.  The hair-fine needles are strategically placed at points on the body to help it better adapt to the stresses that cause the body to experience pain and functional deficits that can affect our health.  By stimulating the release of natural pain relieving and anti-inflammatory substances produced by our bodies, and gradually retraining and resetting the brain’s ability to optimally regulate the body’s functions, acupuncture can help to both overcome immediate symptoms in the short term, and help to preserve good healthy function over time.

The benefits of acupuncture are being increasingly recognized by medical research and the public alike as a safe, minimally invasive, and drug-free option to control pain and significantly increase quality of life.  Because acupuncture works by stimulating functions already existing in the body, there are no side-effects to be concerned about and none of the long term “costs” to the body that may often be associated with drugs or surgery.
