Acupuncture is a natural healing therapy used in Chinese Medicine and enhances homeostasis of the body by stimulating the body’s natural ability to heal. During each individualized acupuncture treatment, very thin, sterilized needles are inserted at precise points on the body (the needles are disposed of at the end of each treatment). Stimulating specific combinations of these points will lessen pain, reduce inflammation, and improve range of motion by promoting the circulation of Qi (pronounced “chee”) along natural meridian channels in the body. Acupuncture treatments are, for the most part, pain-free. In fact, many patients find it so relaxing that they fall asleep on the table during treatment.
