Acupuncture originated in China over 2000 years ago. Today it’s practiced around the world and has been extensively researched with over 13,000 clinical studies over the past 20 years.

An acupuncture treatment involves the insertion of very small, fine needles into specific spots called acupuncture points. There are over 400 acupuncture points on the body.

Acupuncture helps treat a wide variety of conditions because of its ability to stimulate the body to promote healing. It also regulates many important functions associated with pain relief, inflammation, tissue healing and stress.

Additional therapies may be combined with your acupuncture treatment including cupping, acupressure, electrical stimulation, and infrared heat therapy as needed.

  • Pain relief
  • Decreases inflammation
  • Promotes deep relaxation and calm
  • Improves muscle contraction, relaxation and nerve function
  • Regulates circulation and blood flow
  • Stimulates the immune system
  • Strongly stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system

An acupuncture appointment will take about one hour. At your first appointment, your acupuncturist will take a full history and do an assessment that can involve taking your pulse and checking your tongue. Your acupuncturist will then be able to discuss your diagnosis and treatment plan.

Acupuncture needles are tiny, single-use needles that are barely noticeable once inserted. You may feel a momentary pinch or tingling sensation that subsides in a few seconds. We make sure you are comfortable at each step.

The needles are left in place for 15 to 20 minutes. During this time and following the treatment most people feel a sense of deep relaxation.
