Acupuncture


 

Used in healing for more than 5,000 years, acupuncture is a form of medicine that encourages the body to heal itself. Fine, sterile needles are inserted into the skin and underlying tissues at specific locations called points. This process sends a signal to the nervous system, telling the body to heal and return to normal function

Acupuncture can be effective in:

  • Musculoskeletal problems—Muscle soreness, back pain, disc problems, osteoarthritis, degenerative joint disease
  • Neurological disorders—Seizure, weakness from chronic disc disease, radial nerve or facial paralysis
  • Gastrointestinal disorders—Diarrhea, constipation, vomiting, poor appetite
  • Chemotherapy—Minimizing side effects in cancer patients and promoting general wellbeing
  • Chronic conditions—Asthma, geriatric weakness, skin problems, immune system disorders, and more

We often combine western medications with acupuncture for enhanced treatment results.
