What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is among the oldest healing practices in the world. When our bodies’ balance is disturbed due to trauma, poor diet, medications, stress, environmental factors or excessive emotional factors pain or illness will result. Acupuncture helps facilitate and correct these imbalances by stimulating the body’s natural ability to heal itself.
Contemporary medical research has shown that acupuncture stimulates the natural release of endorphins and other neurotransmitters. It also helps regulate hormones and enzymes to powerfully reduce inflammation and promote healing.
The following conditions respond to acupuncture: acute pain and tension (neck, back, shoulder, knee and foot pain), chronic stress and related symptoms, anxiety, insomnia, depression, women's health, fertility, TMJ, headaches and migraines, orthopedic and sports injuries, digestive problems, IBS, arthritis, chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia, common cold, flu and allergies.
