Acupuncture

Acupuncture:

Acupuncture is a treatment based on ancient Chinese medicine, a system of healing that dates back thousands of years. At the core of Chinese medicine is the notion that a type of life force, or energy, known as Qi (pronounced "chee") flows through energy pathways (channels) in the body, much like water flows through an irrigation system. That energy is what drives blood and fluids to every cell of the body. When there is a breakdown in that system, your body lets you know by feeling physical or emotional discomfort. The acupuncturists job is to clear stagnation along these channels to maximize the comfort and well-being of the patient.

Aiding with Pain:

Acupuncture can help in conjunction with other specialty's to treat problems such as headaches, neck pain, back pain, muscle spasms, trigger points, sciatica and other related radicular conditions. Allow us to make a plan for your treatment, with the objective of reducing pain and increasing mobility with the least invasive and conservative procedures as possible.
