Acupuncture

The origins of acupuncture began in China over 3,000 to 5, 000 years ago. The practice of acupuncture involves inserting tiny, sterile, stainless-steel needles into the skin at selected points on the body to  release the body's own pain-blocking chemicals (endorphins) and promote the release of anti-inflammatory agents.

Acupuncture is an effective treatment for disorders such as migraine headaches, chronic problems like back and neck pain, sports injuries, and hormonal symptoms like hot flashes associated with menopause.

Many patients receive acupuncture to treat emotional issues such as anxiety and depression as it has the ability to calm the spirit.

Some patients do not even notice the insertion of the acupuncture needles. Others describe the feeling as a slight pinch and a tingling or a slight ache. Patients may relax in a private, quiet room while the needles remain in place for 20 to 30 minutes. Acupuncture visits are 60 minutes for initial appointments and 45-60 minutes for follow-up appointments.

Acupuncture is always administered as a series of treatments. Some patients feel immediate relief of their symptoms, while others notice a difference after a few treatments.
