Acupuncture is the insertion of very thin needles at specific locations of the body to stimulate the peripheral nervous system, circulatory system, endocrine system and immune systems to relieve pain, reduce inflammation and restore the natural healing ability of the body or homeostasis.

These “acupoints” when stimulated, increase blood flow, stimulate the body’s innate healing systems, release natural pain killers, reduce the perception and intensity of chronic pain, relaxes muscles, and relieves stress.
While acupuncture is often associated with pain control, it is also very useful for many other conditions. Acupuncture can be effective as the only treatment used, or as the support or adjunct to other medical treatment forms. The World Health Organization recognizes the use of acupuncture in the treatment of a wide range of medical problems, including:

• Digestive disorders: gastritis and hyperacidity, spastic colon, constipation, diarrhea.

• Respiratory disorders: sinusitis, sore throat, bronchitis, asthma, recurrent chest infections.

• Neurological and muscular disorders: headaches, facial tics, neck pain, rib neuritis, frozen shoulder, tennis elbow, various forms of tendonitis, low back pain, sciatica, osteoarthritis.

• Urinary, menstrual/hormonal and reproductive problems.

Acupuncture is particularly useful in resolving physical problems related to tension and stress and emotional conditions, such as depression or anxiety.

Acupuncture treatments are holistic and individualized.  Each treatment focuses on bringing the body back to health by balancing all the systems of the body to work more efficiently together.  Each person has a different set of health concerns and circumstances that must be taken into consideration during each treatment to achieve healing.
