Acupuncture is regarded as a safe and effective therapy that involves placing very thin, sterile needles into the body at certain points to initiate a healing response. Most people describe the treatment as a relaxing and enjoyable experience and many of our patients come for treatments weekly. It is believed that this therapy works by releasing endorphins (“feel good” chemicals) in the body, which may alleviate pain, reduce stress, and improve sleep and energy levels. Our doctors are trained to diagnose and apply needles based on Traditional Chinese Medicine principles. We also use acupressure, ear acupuncture, essential oil application to acupuncture points, and mild electrical current to meet our patient’s individual treatment needs.
