Acupuncture is an alternative therapy that reduces acute and chronic pain. It has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries and is widely practiced today in the United States. The treatment involves the placement of needles that stimulate points of the body that release natural painkillers called endorphins. These sites connect with pathways or ‘meridians’ that distribute energy and clear obstructions that may result in illness.

Once the meridians have been regulated, the body begins to naturally repair internal functions. Harmony is quickly restored to the blood flow and nutrients that balance the body and its energy sources.

*Treatment success variables include but are not limited the condition, symptom or disease being treated and patient’s medical history.
