Acupuncture

acupuncture-space

Our soothing Acupuncture space.

This centuries-year old therapy is excellent alone, or as an adjunct to chiropractic care, to bring out overall health and wellness, prevent illness and to treat a variety of conditions. Acupuncture is particularly useful for pain and in resolving physical problems related to tension, stress and emotional conditions.

What About the Needles?

The most common question we get is about the needles we use. Most people have encountered hypodermic needles and sewing needles. Both types are gigantic compared to the ones we use. In fact, five of our needles could easily fit inside a hypodermic needle!

Feels Great

When we first insert these ultra-fine, sterile needles at targeted acupuncture points on your body, some people report a small prick, like a mosquito bite. Many people do not feel pain at all, and there is no pain once the needles are in place.

How Does it Work?

The research is clear, Acupuncture works! Perhaps the best way to think about acupuncture is to imagine rivers of energy (chi) running throughout your body, organized by meridians.

These meridians can experience a “log jam” and energy flow is restricted. The needles help loosen the logjam and allow energy to circulate properly. When energy (or chi) is flowing properly, your body is restored to a more natural state of equilibrium and healing occurs.

Acupuncture visits can take up to 45 minutes: we will chat for a few minutes about how you are feeling, the needles are then placed which takes about 10 minutes, then you will rest quietly and comfortably for about 30 minutes.

Most people experience a variety of post-session feelings, which range from energized to a deep sense of relaxation and well-being.
