Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a method of encouraging the body to heal and improve functioning by inserting very fine, sterile, disposable needles and applying heat or electrical stimulation at very precise points on the body. These points help to stimulate several body mechanisms including the autonomic nervous system, the endocrine system, and immune system. Think of Acupuncture as a method of manipulating blood flow, increasing circulating endorphin levels, and generating a healing response by focusing blood, white blood cell and histamine response.

Conditions that benefit from acupuncture include:

  • Headaches
  • Tendonitis
  • Bursitis
  • ACL/MCL issues
  • Muscle strains
  • Chronic pain
  • Tennis and golfers elbow
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
