What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is an ancient and dynamic medical tool that promotes the body’s natural ability to recover by fortifying the body's immune health system and vital life force called Qi (“chi”).  Acupuncture increases blood flow and thereby reduces inflammation in the body. It creates a bio-feedback loop in the amygdala area of the brain -where pain is processed -lessening the negative response.

More doctors today are prescribing acupuncture for pain management over opioids, as it is clinically proven as an excellent,  non-addictive pain management tool. Acupuncture treatments enhance the immune function of the body and decrease the level of pain. It stimulates the nervous system, activating the release of natural endorphins, enkephalins, and anti-inflammatory properties while increasing blood circulation to the injured area, bringing nutrients to tissues and stimulating the body’s natural healing processes. There have been over 13,000 studies conducted showing undisputable results that acupuncture is beneficial to overall health, wellness and recovery.
