Acupuncture involves the insertion of very fine, solid stainless steel needles into the skin at specific points on the body to achieve a therapeutic effect.
Acupuncture is used to encourage healing, reduce or relieve pain, and improve movement and function of the body. There is a release of the body’s natural endorphins with this form of stimulation. It can be an effective treatment for a variety of conditions including headaches, neck and back pain, sciatica, and muscle/tendon injuries.
Needles are typically left in place for 15 – 30 minutes. All needles used at our clinic are disposable.
