What It Is
Acupuncture is one of the main forms of treatment in traditional Chinese medicine. It involves the use of sharp, thin needles that are inserted in the body at very specific points. This process is believed to adjust and alter the body's energy flow into healthier patterns, and is used to treat a wide variety of illnesses and health conditions.
The goal of our acupuncture treatments are to restore and balance these meridians to allow your body to function normally and return to health naturally.
