One of the oldest systems of medicine is also one of the most effective. Most patients respond very well to acupuncture therapy. The basic philosophy of acupuncture is balance and restoration. Inserting a hair thin needle into the skin on various points throughout the body stimulates the body to heal itself. For those who have an extreme aversion to needles, acupressure is a good option. Acupressure stimulates the same acupuncture points without use of a needle.
Auricular acupuncture, which uses points in each ear, is fantastic for treating addictions such as drugs, alcohol and even nicotine. Acupuncture does not cause side effects like many medications nor does it have negative interactions with other therapies.
Each acupuncture session consists of different treatment protocols that have been customized to the patient’s needs. One session lasts approximately 20-30 minutes.
Acupuncture can be used to treat:
- Pain management
- Adrenal Fatigue
- Headaches, including migraines
- Hormone balancing
