AcupunctureAs an ideal adjunct to chiropractic care, we use acupuncture when we see health problems that seem caused by disruption to energy pathways in your body called meridians. This centuries-old healing procedure focuses on the integrity of bodily systems, not specific conditions.

What About the Needles?

The most common question we get is about the needles we use. Most people have encountered hypodermic needles and sewing needles. Both types are gigantic compared to the ones we use. In fact, five to ten of our needles could easily fit inside a hypodermic needle!

Feels Great

When we first insert these ultra-fine, sterile stainless steel needles at special energy points on your body, most people report a small prick, like a mosquito bite. When there is discomfort it is usually created by vivid imaginations, not our needles!

How Does it Work?

Recent research has shown that acupuncture points are directly linked to the body’s nervous system. This supports the Western medicine understanding of its benefits including pain relief and tissue healing.

The Traditional Chinese Medicine explanation is to imagine rivers of energy throughout your body, organized by meridians. These meridians can experience a “log jam” and energy flow is restricted. The needles help loosen the logjam and allow energy to circulate properly.

Acupuncture visits can take up to 15-20 minutes.

Specific Benefits

Most people experience a variety of post-session feelings, which range from energized to a deep sense of relaxation and well-being.

Clinical observation shows that acupuncture produces at least 4 therapeutic goals:

1. Release of physical and emotional stress

2. Enhancement of immune and anti-inflammatory mechanisms

3. Accelerated tissue healing

4. Pain relief
