Acupuncture is a potent technique that uses very thin needles that are inserted at specific acupuncture points on the body.
For most, the needling process is painless, or minimally painful. The needles are left in place for a short time while the patient lays on the table relaxing.
Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years in China, and is now practiced all over the world. Over 3 million Americans used acupuncture in 2007, and that number is growing. Its widespread use is due in large part to the fact that it works, and works quickly.
Many patients leave our clinic feeling significantly better. Others feel better over the next several days. Acupuncture is most researched for pain, but is part of the distinct medical system of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
