What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a therapeutic modality that involves the insertion and manipulation of flexible, hair-thin needles at specific points on the body. Acupuncture techniques have been used in East Asia for more that 2,500 years and have become popular throughout the world as patients increasingly seek safe, effective alternatives to pharmaceuticals and surgery. Acupuncture promotes the body’s innate healing abilities and helps to reestablish the body’s natural state of balance, making it a safe, chemical-free alternative for relief from many of today’s most common health complaints. Acupuncture has been endorsed by numerous health care organizations, including the American Pain Society, the American College of Physicians, the British National Institute for Health, and the World health Organization.

Acupuncture returns the body to its
natural state of balance and harmony.

Is Acupuncture Safe?

Yes. Acupuncture is used by millions of Americans every year. Acupuncturists are required to undergo extensive education, including detailed study of human anatomy and training in Clean Needle Technique.  As required by law, I use pre-sterilized, disposable, single-use needles to ensure your complete safety.
