Acupuncture is a health science that early physicians in East Asia have been using for more than 5,000 years to treat pain and dysfunction in the body. There are over 1,000 “acupoints” on the body, which directly affect the energy network right below the surface of the skin that affect internal organs and structures. Acupuncture has been met with success all over the world and is considered a very effective healing science.
Acupuncture is a method of encouraging the body to promote natural healing and improve function. This is done by inserting sterilized, stainless-steel needles (that are as fine as a human hair) into specific points located near or on the surface of the skin which have the ability to alter various biochemical and physiological conditions in order to treat a wide variety of illnesses.
Chiropractic acupuncture is a chiropractic sub-specialty that focuses on the relationship between the nervous system, spinal system and the body’s energy pathways, or meridians. The American Board of Chiropractic Acupuncture notes that chiropractic acupuncturists use acupuncture to treat patients’ health conditions and injuries. We may combine acupuncture with other treatment modalities, if needed.
Regardless of what you’re being treated for, many of our patients have reported back to us that they feel more energetic, happier, and get a better night’s sleep with acupuncture, which contributes to this therapy’s popularity.
