Hiking in Nature

Acupuncture began in ancient China over 2000 years ago. It balances the body's energy flow into healthier patterns and is used to treat a wide variety of illnesses and health conditions. In most cases patients find acupuncture comfortable and relaxing. Many patients report feeling like they had a massage afterward. Contrary to hypodermic needles, acupuncture needles are very fine, and therefore not as painful. 


Acupuncture has also shown to be helpful with anxiety. The choice to use acupuncture, or any other treatment in our office, is always based on a dialogue between patient and doctor. There may be many reasons we may recommend it, and patients often come into our practice requesting it.
