Acupuncture

Acupuncture is an ancient technique that promotes the body’s natural healing processes. It involves the insertion of thin, sterile needles into precise acupuncture points. The patient’s signs, symptoms and health patterns help to determine which points to use.

Most people assume that the needles we use are the same as those used to draw blood or give an injection. Acupuncture needles are quite different. They don’t create the painful sensation associated with getting a shot. People generally find acupuncture treatments to be relaxing and rejuvenating. All needles used at our facility are sterile, single use only, and are disposed of properly.
