What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is the insertion of very fine needles on specific points along energy pathways called meridians. To put it another way, meridians follow routes similar to nerve or visceral to somatic pain (e.g., the way a heart attack causes left shoulder pain or sciatica travels down the back of the leg). By treating areas along this pathway, disfunction can be removed from that specific meridian.
What Can Acupuncture Help With?
Standard treatments can often ease the pain, but when they don’t… Acupuncture is an option that is worth considering. Research shows that Acupuncture can provide relief from many common forms of pain. Ask our staff! We’ve seen countless patients get instant relief after just a few treatments.
This technique is an enhanced version where electric current passes between the needles during treatment. This current provides more stimulation to acupoints than needle twirling or other hand manipulation techniques an acupuncturist might use.
