Acupuncture has been used to successfully treat millions of people over
the past 3,000 years. It is an effective form of medical treatment based
on a complete holistic health care system. This is a safe, natural,
drug-free way to complete healing.
2. Safe and Painless
When practiced by a qualified practitioner, acupuncture is safe. The needles are one-time use only and are sterile and do not carry any risk of infection. The needles are about ten times smaller in size than an average hypodermic needle, approximately the width of a hair.
3. Only Positive Side Effects
Acupuncture is a completely natural therapy and works directly with the body’s natural processes, not against them. Feeling great is the most commonly reported side affect of acupuncture.
4. Strengthens Immunity
Our digestive tract, skin, and lymphatic system are three important parts of the immune system. Acupuncture treats the underlying imbalances that are affecting the flow of Qi (pronounced “chee”) and the immune system.
5. Awakens Self-Healing
Research shows that acupuncture triggers the body’s own mechanisms for manufacturing and releasing its own chemicals that produce the feeling of well-being and reduce pain. The body produces natural “medication” needed without bad side effects.
6. Excellent Stress-Relief
When Qi becomes “blocked” or the supply is inadequate, the body and organ systems become “stressed out” and our health is then compromised. Acupuncture supports and restores balance, energy and organ function affected by the stress.
7. Individualized Treatment
Acupuncture treats the whole person, not "the disease". The root causes of a symptom that two people have may be completely different. A full health history is taken, regarding all aspects of a person's life, to formulate an effective treatment plan.
