Acupuncture for General Wellness

Ideally, acupuncture is used as preventative medicine. However, many of us regularly have health issues that need to be addressed.  Since acupuncture treats the body as a whole, acupuncture can help the body work more efficiently so that all aspects of your health are working well.

Acupuncture can boost your immune system, improve sleep, strengthen digestion, and help you recover from injuries or surgeries. Acupuncture uses ultra-fine needles inserted into the skin to stimulate nerves, release natural painkillers such as endorphins and norepinephrine, decrease inflammation, and increase blood flow. All of this helps your body balance and heal itself. Because we focus on the root of the problem, you will experience long-lasting results. Acupuncture will bring attention to the areas of your body that are not working efficiently so that your body can heal itself and work the way it was intended to.

If your health and wellness are important to you, adding regular acupuncture treatments to your self-care routine will keep you feeling your best and living your life to its fullest.
