Acupuncture is a time-tested, holistic medicine that can help to decrease pain and restore function by increasing blood flow and recruiting the immune system to heal by targeting specific areas and/or internal organs. It is also helpful for other internal conditions such as anxiety, GI problems, fertility, thyroid, allergies, weight management and much more. Science is only beginning to grasp the powerful medicine that is Acupuncture and understand the mechanisms behind it.

COMMON QUESTIONS REGARDING ACUPUNCTURE
AM I A CANDIDATE FOR ACUPUNCTURE?
The medical literature shows acupuncture's effect on nearly every biophysical system in the body. I've seen patients suffering from a wide variety of problems respond to acupuncture treatment when nothing else has worked.
So, for most people, yes, acupuncture is something you should explore.
HOW MANY ACUPUNCTURE TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
The number of treatments needed differs from person to person. For complex or long-standing conditions, one or two treatments a week for several months may be recommended. For acute problems, usually fewer visits are required, and for health maintenance, we recommend monthly tune ups.
DOES ACUPUNCTURE HURT?
No. It's very comfortable. Most people end up taking a nap during their treatment and leave feeling refreshed and relaxed.
