What is ACUPUNCTURE?
In traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture is a procedure designed to stimulate specific points on the body. Often, small needles are gently inserted into the skin in target areas. To learn more about what to expect from the procedure at our clinic, please contact us.
While clinical researchers are still debating about the reasoning behind its effects, acupuncture has been shown to help with pain in the neck, lower back, knees and joints (we also offer joint injections for osteoarthritis), headaches, nausea, and even chronic pain. Acupuncture has even been shown to slow down the frequency of migraines, as well as their intensity. The procedure is also therapeutical, performed in a relaxing environment aimed to relieve insomnia, depression anxiety, overall mental wellbeing amongst the physical benefits. Acupuncture is also suggested to prevent certain diseases and boost the immune system.
