Acupuncture

Acupuncture works by stimulating the body’s natural healing abilities.  Very fine disposable needles are placed in specific points along energy pathways of the body called meridians.  Patients may experience a sense of well-being and relaxation during treatment. Research shows that acupuncture stimulates endorphins (a neurotransmitter) and other brain chemicals that promote circulation and hormonal balance, as well as reduce pain and inflammation.  It is effective for both physical and psychological problems.  One of the greatest advantages of acupuncture is the absence of undesirable side effects.  Other techniques of treatment may include thermal therapy, acupressure, cupping, electrical stimulation and/or herbal therapy.
