What Is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a system of medicine that has been practiced safely and effectively for thousands of years.  This medicine utilizes the concept of Qi (pronounced chee), the vital energy that gives us life. When Qi is disrupted it can lead to imbalance in the body and cause physical, mental, and emotional symptoms.

How Can Acupuncture Help?

Acupuncture activates the body’s ability to heal itself.  By inserting needles into any of the 365 major acupuncture points throughout the body, we are able to restore balance and promote healing naturally.

Since acupuncture treats the whole person, it can help with a wide variety of conditions, including insomnia, pain, stress, digestive issues, infertility, anxiety or depression, or even allergies.

I’m Not A Fan Of Needles! What Does Acupuncture Feel Like?

Acupuncture needles are not like the needles you’re used to seeing. A whisker-thin acupuncture needle is placed superficially into the body, which causes feel-good endorphins to be released, creating a calm state of mind.  You may feel a slight pinch or dull ache when the needle is inserted but this only lasts a moment or two. In general, people leave treatments feeling an overall sense of relaxation that can last well after their session.
