A revitalizing and balancing system of medicine practiced worldwide for over 3,000 years to help cure not only headaches and pain, but dis-eases such as depression/anxiety, hormonal imbalances, IBS, etc. The art of the practice comes in the doctor’s skill to choose precise acupuncture points customized to your detailed history of imbalances and symptoms that will bring your mind-body back to a state of harmony. In doing so, the healing process can begin.
Acupuncture and Oriental medicine is recognized by the World Health Organization (WHO) and National Institutes of Health (NIH). The 1997 NIH Consensus Conference on Acupuncture stated, “The data in support of acupuncture are as strong as those for many accepted Western medical therapies. One of the advantages of acupuncture is that the incidence of adverse effects is substantially lower than that of many drugs or other medical procedures used for some conditions.”
Acupuncture treatment uses the insertion of thin disposable needles which cause a rise in endorphins, vasodilation of the blood vessels, and promotes circulation of Qi(energy) along the meridian systems. As a result, pain and discomfort is reduced and tissues heal. Acupuncture is often an effective therapy for other chronic and painful debilitating disorders which have no clear explanation or origin in the traditional western medical model.
