For more than 3,500 years, acupuncture has been providing relief to people around the world. The treatment involves puncturing the patient’s skin with very thin, inch-long needles. Originally developed and practiced in China, this soothing therapy is today embraced by patients who seek to alleviate symptoms caused by ailments that range from arthritis to migraines to digestive issues. It is even effective in helping people quit smoking and lose weight.

Acupuncture draws on the belief that a vital force of energy called Qi (pronounced “chee”) circulates throughout our body, from the top of our head to the soles of our feet. When we experience good health, this energy flows unobstructed along pathways in the body called meridians. Each meridian is believed to be connected to a specific organ system, and when an energy flow is disrupted by a blockage, disease or an injury, illness or pain occurs. Acupuncture is then used to balance the flow of Qi and stimulate our body’s natural ability to heal.

Acupuncture is one of the most utilized services offered, and is most effective with regular and frequent treatments.
