What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a form of alternative medicine that involves inserting thin needles into specific points on the body to stimulate and balance the body's energy flow, or "qi" (pronounced "chee"). It originated in China over 2,000 years ago and has been used to treat a wide variety of health conditions.

What can I expect at an appointment?

The needles used in acupuncture are very thin and are inserted into the skin at various depths, depending on the location and the condition being treated. The needles may be left in place for several minutes to over an hour, and may be stimulated by gentle twisting or heat.

How does Acupuncture work?

Acupuncture is believed to work by stimulating the body's natural healing processes and promoting balance and harmony within the body. According to traditional Chinese medicine, the body's energy flows along meridians, or pathways, and illness or pain is believed to result from a disruption or blockage in this flow. By inserting needles into specific points along these meridians, acupuncturists aim to restore the body's natural balance and promote healing. It is common to need 1-10 sessions for optimal results.

What can you treat with Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is commonly used to treat pain, including headaches, back pain, low back pain, sciatica, herniated discs, numbness and arthritis, as well as a variety of other conditions, such as infertility, allergies, digestive disorders (such as IBS), insomnia, depression and anxiety. It has also proven beneficial for those trying to quit smoking, lose weight, dealing with post covid symptoms or reducing nausea caused by chemotherapy.
