HOW DOES ACUPUNCTURE WORK?

The individual acu-points cover the entire body similar to the circulatory system and nervous system. 

Each point, when activated, has a distinct effect on the muscles, joints, systems and organs of the body. 

Some points are used to reduce pain and inflammation, speed healing. Other points may strengthen the immune system, digestive or respiratory system.

There is very little sensation of the acupuncture needles because they are only slightly thicker than a hair. 

The needles are sterile, used only once and disposed.

HOW MUCH TREATMENT WILL YOU NEED?

Treatment depends on the type, duration, and severity of your health issues. 

To be effective, acupuncture requires a series of closely-spaced consistent treatments.

You cannot evaluate progress after only one or two treatments.

Some health issues can be treated effectively with two treatments per week for a few weeks. 

Severe or chronic health issues may require more intensive treatment over a longer period.   

Acupuncture has many positive “side effects” like improved mood, energy, sleep, and mental concentration.
