Acupuncture

What is Acupuncture and how does it work?

· Acupuncture is a form of medicine originating in ancient China that works by inserting thin needles into the skin.

· Acupuncture is used to treat pain in the body, depression, anxiety, insomnia, headache, dizziness and much more.

· Acupuncture works by balancing the energetic channels in the body.

The results of acupuncture are cumulative, therefore, several treatments are needed for the best results

Is acupuncture safe?

· When performed by a competently trained, licensed professional, acupuncture is safe. All licensed acupuncturists today use individually pack-aged, sterile, disposable needles. The chance of infection is minimal. 

How many treatments will I need?

· That depends on the duration, severity, and nature of your complaint. You may need only a single treatment for an acute condition. A series of 5-10 treatments may resolve or reduce many symptoms produced by chronic problems.

How does it feel?

· Upon needle insertion and during treatment is normal to experience some tingling, warmth, heaviness, and a feeling of energy moving up and down channels. Acupuncture should not be painful.
