The treatment of acupuncture involves inserting small, thin needles into the body at specific, purposeful points on the body. These strategic points stimulate nerves, tissue, and muscles to help activate your body’s natural painkillers and release endorphins. This will result in natural pain relief.
Acupuncture is a key component of traditional Chinese medicine in which the treatment balances the flow of energy in the body along the purposeful points of the needle insertions. This is a safe and effective treatment that has been used for many years.
