Acupuncture is among the oldest healing practices in the world, and is part of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Chinese explain acupuncture as qi or “chi” — energy traveling through channels in the body surfaces. Any obstruction of this energy flow can result in pain, inflammation, disease, and imbalance.
Acupuncture is the stimulation of specific points on the body, by various techniques, including the insertion of thin, disposable needles through the skin. Our gentle technique intends to remove blockages in the flow of “chi” and restore and maintain health.
Acupuncture is an ideal complement to your chiropractic adjustment to help:
You’ll be in a quiet, private room with relaxing music. You’ll be offered a cotton gown to disrobe from the waist up. The process takes about 20 – 30 minutes, most of which you’ll spend alone relaxing. You may choose to have heat packs placed on your back and feet.
We use sterile, prepackaged needles and adhere to all safety standards. The process is very safe. The needles are very thin (about the size of a strand of hair). You may feel a gentle prick when they are placed, then you won’t feel them anymore. It’s not painful at all. Many people report feeling a wave of relaxation on the table.
