Acupuncture improves the body’s functions and promotes the natural self-healing process by stimulating specific anatomic sites commonly referred to as acupuncture points. The most common method used to stimulate these points is with the insertion of fine, sterile needles into the skin. Acupuncture is used an adjunctive treatment for chronic pain, acute injuries and systemic imbalances.
The aim of treatment is to improve the flow of energy throughout the body and balance the internal state of the body. Acupuncture is used to address systemic conditions such as migraines, anxiety, depression, sleep disorders, infertility, smoking cessation, craving control, neurological disorders and vascular disorders.
Regarding musculoskeletal conditions, the focus is on creating more blood flow and circulation to the region of dysfunction. With more blood flow comes more oxygen and with more oxygen, the healing time decreases.
