Acupuncture is one part of a larger system of Traditional Chinese Medicine. This comprehensive medical system is based on thousands of years of study, observation, and treatment of the human body.
Acupuncture is often able to treat conditions that fall through the cracks of conventional medicine. A few common conditions treated with acupuncture include: chronic pain, insomnia, anxiety, depression, digestive discomfort, menstrual irregularities, and headaches.
Acupuncture works with a network of interconnected pathways within the body and is surprisingly painless. Very thin needles are placed at specific points in the body to re-establish balance and communication within the body. Acupuncture treatments are extremely gentle and relaxing.
