What is medical acupuncture?

Acupuncture is an ancient art and science that consists of inserting fine needles into specific points on the body in order to improve a variety of health issues. By inserting these fine single-use, disposable needles into different points on the body to stimulate specific responses, this treatment can help to improve various health conditions.

How does medical acupuncture work?

Fine single-use, disposable needles are inserted into specific points in the body, which can help to stimulate the body to release natural chemicals in the muscles, spinal cord, or brain. Additionally, this process can help to reduce muscle spasms and lead to a healing response at the site of insertion. The result of the treatment is that the body releases natural chemicals that can change how pain is experienced, trigger the release of hormones, and more. After receiving acupuncture treatment, many patients experience improved physical and emotional wellbeing.

What types of conditions can medical acupuncture help to treat?

Some of the health challenges that medical acupuncture can be effectively utilized to treat include chronic pain, men’s and women’s health issues, joint problems, respiratory issues, and many more. If you are dealing with an ongoing health challenge and are looking for new ways to approach the problem, our medical acupuncture services might be ideal for you.
