During a customized acupuncture session, your body's natural energetic flows are stimulated and restored using tiny, single-use needles to reduce pain and illness and promote vitality.
Acupuncture dates back thousands of years. It involves inserting and manipulating extremely thin needles at specific points on your body. According to traditional Oriental medicine theory, it is at these points that the energy that keeps us healthy flows close to the skin. Acupuncturists place thin, sterile, one-time use needles at these points to correct, rebalance or unblock the flow of energy through your body.
The National Institutes of Health and the World Health Organization recommend acupuncture for many disorders, which include:
- Labor pain
- Low back pain
- Menstrual cramps
- Nausea and vomiting induced by chemotherapy
- Pain and nausea after operations
- Postoperative dental pain
- Tendonitis, including tennis elbow and frozen shoulder
