What is acupuncture
Acupuncture is an effective, natural and safe medicine procedure. It is used successfully in treating many physical, mental and emotional conditions.  Acupuncture uses very fine, flexible needles to stimulate points along channels on the body. Points may be used in the affected area, or other areas of the body. These points are commonly referred to as “Acupoints.” Acupuncture works with your body’s energy to help open up the channels allowing your energy to flow properly. Once the needles are in place, we let the body do its work to heal itself.
