Acupuncture is one of the oldest forms of therapy and has its roots in Traditional Chinese Medicine which believes in the flow of Qi (energy) to bring balance to the human body. In the west, scientific research has provided a neuro-anatomical mechanism for the effect of acupuncture. It is suggested that inserting needles into the body at specific points, stimulates the CNS to release chemicals/hormones that enhance analgesia.
Medical Acupuncture (sometimes refered to as dry needling) can aid in the treatment of a variety of conditions by encouraging natural healing, reducing inflammation, and decreasing pain. Our practitioners rely on their knowledge of anatomy, physiology, and pathology along with the principles of evidence-based medicine to further benefit their patients’ well being.
