Acupuncture, a form of meridian therapy, is an ancient Chinese medicine used to alleviate pain and promote overall health. There are over 2000 conditions cataloged that acupuncture/meridian therapy can be beneficial to.
Through the stimulation of the meridians, an acupuncturist is able to restore balance necessary for healing and thereby health to the patient. Acupuncture at our office uses pre-sterilized, single use, disposable needles placed in specific points, along invisible meridians that run throughout the body. Each meridian point has a specific significance and can unblock and repair meridians and channels with vital energy or chi.
Acupuncture is used to treat a wide range of health problems, such as:
- Persistent lower back pain
- Chronic tension-type headaches and migraines
- Neck pain
- Joint pain
- Postoperative pain
- Depression and anxiety
Acupuncture takes a holistic approach to understanding normal function and disease processes, and focuses as much on the prevention of illness as on the treatment. Call our office to find out more or use this link to download a complimentary flier on acupuncture.
