What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a time-tested modality that has spanned thousands of years. It involves inserting very thin needles into certain points of the body to activate healing on a local and systemic levels. Acupuncture has a regulating effect on the entire body. Research has shown, it balances hormones, regulates blood pressure, decreases stress response, releases endorphins, decreases pain, and increases speed of healing.
Traditional Chinese Medicine views the entire body as a organism in a constant and dynamic state of flux. TCM looks at all of these systems and how they interact.
Health is a state of balance and harmony
Symptoms such as pain, insomnia, or digestive problems are clues pointing to a greater imbalance in the body. TCM investigates all of these issues and traces them back to a root.
Acupuncture and TCM do a great job of treating symptoms as well as the root cause of disease.
