What is acupuncture?
Acupuncture is an age-old medical practice that stimulates certain parts of the body depending on what your doctor uses it to treat. The practice itself dates back to thousands of years ago in China, where there is evidence of acupuncture practice as far back as the Stone Age. The practice uses super-thin needles strategically placed into the top layer of the skin to stimulate the nerves.

Can acupuncture help me?
Acupuncture can help a variety of people with many different musculoskeletal issues, nausea, and stress. In addition, acupuncture can help treat migraine headaches, anxiety, and morning sickness. The amount of acupuncture treatments required varies from patient to patient. While some patients may need several ongoing treatments per week, others may see the benefit right away. Consulting with your acupuncturist is the best way to determine the best course of treatment for you and your condition.
