How can Acupuncture help me?

With a proven history of over 6,000 years, acupuncture and herbal medicine are the oldest and most commonly used medical practices in the world. The goal of acupuncture is to stir your body's natural healing resources, so that you can begin healing from within. Tiny needles penetrate the skin, triggering a cascade of your body's own natural endorphins and neurotransmitters, which stimulate your body to heal itself from within. Acupuncture helps your body restore proper circulation, sooths painful areas, and allows nourishment to enter the body tissues in just the right amounts; all controlled by your own nervous system.

More and more people are choosing Acupuncture because it targets the underlying causes of disease, rather than just treating symptoms. Herbs and dietary recommendations are often prescribed in conjunction with acupuncture, and are specifically chosen to nourish deficiencies in the diet or to release excesses that have contributed to the disease pattern. Oriental medicine works in harmony with nature to restore balance within the mind, body, and spirit.
