What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is part of an ancient Chinese Medical system dating back over 2,000 years. Modern evidence-based research shows that acupuncture safely treats a wide range of common health problems and can also offer an effective treatment for pain. Scientists believe that acupuncture may work by interacting with the nervous system, activating mechanisms which alter brain function, which then stimulate a response from the body's own healing process, thereby promoting physical and emotional well-being.
People seek acupuncture treatment for many different reasons. It could be that you have a specific health condition, or maybe you want to enhance your sense of well-being, increase your energy, or manage your stress levels.
Every individual treatment is tailored to a patient's specific needs, in order to help them feel well and stay well. It is now estimated that 2.3 million people have acupuncture treatment every year. Many people return to acupuncture again and again because they find it so beneficial and relaxing. If you would like to know how acupuncture may be able to help you, please contact me.
