Acupuncture

A person with an acupuncture needle on their forehead Acupuncture can help remove blockages and restore proper energy flow. It is one of the oldest, most widely used medical procedures in the world. Studies in humans and animals indicate that traditional Chinese acupuncture may stimulate the production of endorphins (our bodies' own painkillers) in the brain, spinal cord and pituitary gland.

What is the treatment like?

Acupuncture treatment consists of the insertion of sterile, wire-thin needles along specific points on the body.

Most people feel no pain, and only minimal discomfort as the needles are inserted. The needles are left in place for anywhere from a few minutes to a half-hour. Some clients report being energized by the treatment; others report feeling relaxed.
