What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a technique which inserts fine needles in the body in order to illicit a healing response. It originated in ancient China. It’s an effective therapy used to treat a wide variety of health concerns

How does acupuncture work?

Our bodies innately want to heal themselves. When you are injured, your body will start the process of healing. Think of the last time you had a papercut. Do you recall how it healed before you knew it? Acupuncture uses needles to illicit that same healing response. Except this time, the trauma is painless, safe and intentional, microscopic and doesn’t hurt.

How many times will I need to come in for treatments?

Our goal is to see you once or twice a month, for as long as you’d like. However, in the beginning few months, treatments are closer together to help the body learn a new way of living.
