Why Should I Get Acupuncture?

It can also be used along with other chiropractic treatments to help speed up the recovery process. A lot of patients choose acupuncture since it a natural method that does not require medication or surgery.

Does Acupuncture Hurt?

Most people feel a little prick when the needles are administered or they may not feel anything at all. Since the needles are small and slim, you should not feel discomfort. Some people are afraid to get acupuncture because they're afraid the therapy will hurt; however, it actually relieves pain and can be used for conditions that may be causing you pain.

How Is Acupuncture Performed?

When acupuncture is performed, our Acupuncturist will place tiny needles into the skin. However, they not pressed deeply in the skin to avoid affecting a nerve. When the needles are inserted, they may be activated in a variety of ways, such as electrical stimulation or through various hand motions. The needles are placed in specific regions that are affected by pain, which ultimately helps relieve pain and the body to heal naturally.
