Acupuncture

 

Acupuncture is gaining more and more popularity in this country for the treatment of acute and chronic pain as well as a vast array of other ailments. Needle insertion effects the peripheral and central nervous systems of the body. It triggers the release of the body's internal chemicals such as endorphins, and enkephalins. These have pain relieving, and stress reducing properties. 

We use sterilized disposable stainless steel needles. The needles are about the width of a hair, so when inserted it is virtually painless.  Sometimes when the needle is inserted you will feel a very unique sensation that can vary from tingling, to warmth, or heaviness. Should you experience any discomfort, alert the practitioner and they will adjust the needle appropriately.
