What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). It works with pressure points that run along the body’s energy lines. Disease in the body begins when there is imbalance in the flow of energythroughout a meridian.  The practitioner uses very thin needles to unblock energy relieve pain.

How does Acupuncture Work?

The needles stimulate the release of pain-relieving endorphins. In addition, acupuncture stimulates blood circulation in the area where the practitioner applies pressure. As a result, the body can begin to heal itself naturally.

What to Expect During a Treatment?

The first appointment will take a little longer because you will need to answer questions so that the practitioner can make a diagnosis. Treatments last between 10 – 30 minutes. You will lie on a table and the practitioner will place needles in your body. Most people say that there is no pain. Some people experience a dull sensation. Then you will rest 5 – 10 minutes. Most people find acupuncture to be very relaxing.
