Acupuncture is a form of medicine that has been practiced for over 2,500 years throughout the world. Instead of taking the body apart and fixing it like a machine, Chinese Medicine understands that the body is an interrelated and integrated ecosystem. Body, mind, and spirit are treated as a whole and, through doing so, this has lead to a unique system of treating pain and disease that is safe, non-invasive and without side effects.
Acupuncture has been scientifically proven to effectively treat a host of symptoms including: pain (chronic and acute), anxiety, headache, digestive problems, menstrual symptoms, insomnia, infertility and much more. Acupuncture has also been proven to be effective cosmetically in the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles on the face.
At the conclusion of an acupuncture treatment, patients often feel a sense of deep relaxation and lightness. Pain reduction, improved mood, restful sleep, lightened PMS symptomology, reduced muscle fatigue recovery time, and shortened duration of cold or flu are other commonly seen outcomes.
