Acupuncture Care

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture, core component of East Asian Medicine, is based on the theory that smooth energy flow throughout the body is essential for balance and health. Disruptions or blockages of this energy flow create imbalance, leading to disease, pain and physiological stress.

Acupuncture points are located along specific pathways, called meridians, and are stimulated with hair thin, sterile needles or with pressure to clear blockage and restore wellbeing. There is scientific and clinical evidence that acupuncture can alter the secretions of neurotransmitters and neurohormones, regulate blood circulation and improve immune function. Acupuncture may be the primary treatment for some disorders or it may work in conjunction with western medical treatment.

Acupuncture is recognized by the World Health Organization (WHO) and The National Institutes of Health (NIH) as safe and effective for a variety of conditions.
