What is acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a therapy that aids the body in healing itself! There is potential for all systems of the body to receive benefit.

Fine, sterile needles are placed on very specific points of the body to stimulate a healing response, specific functions and to clear blockages in circulation of Life Force (Qi). These insertions harness, direct, and stimulate particular points to help restore balance physically and emotionally, and to help alleviate symptoms for specific conditions. Acupuncture has the potential to provide many benefits, but many testimonials read, “I feel more like myself!” Acupuncture aims to achieve the best version of you.
