What is acupuncture?


Acupuncture is the insertion of thin filiform single use sterile needles at specific points of the body by a well trained and licensed acupuncturist. The needles are inserted quickly and relatively painlessly as they are not hollow nor meant to draw blood as hypodermic needles do. The needles are the width of a few strands of hair and are flexible. Once inserted many people go into a state of deep relaxation which is conducive for healing and some patients even fall asleep.  


Acupuncture works by allowing the body to relax, while helping the body to get more out of its own natural healing resources.  These internal resources include increased blood flow, release of endorphins, hormone stimulation, immune system enhancers, natural anti- inflammatory chemistry, etc. In this way acupuncture helps rebalance the body’s systems to regulate and maintain homeostasis.
