Acupuncture is an alternative medicine methodology that originated in ancient China. After its success in China, this treatment spread across the world as a very effective way to treat serious illnesses. Acupuncture is based on helping to retain the balance between the two opposite forces that exist within the body. By inserting the acupuncture needles into these points energy is allowed to flow freely, thereby preventing or removing the illnesses from the body.

Acupuncturists unblock the flow of vital energy by inserting hair thin needles in specific body points. Acupuncture has also been showed to raise Serotonin to help with mood and white bloods cells to help with inflammation in the body.

Needle insertion increases a level of endorphins, which is a natural pain relief hormone. This way, it reduces the need of medical intervention and drug consumption for pain relief. Acupuncture for pain relieving has its long lasting advantages. Acupuncture proves immensely beneficial to relieve body aches and pains irrespective of age and gender of the person. Please feel free to read our Testimonials here.

I use acupuncture needles to stimulate the body to heal itself.  Very thin needles (average number 4-10) are placed into the skin for an average time of 20 minutes. Acupuncture can be used to regulate the qi (energy) for such problems as menstrual cramps, digestive problems, headaches). Acupuncture can be used to improve blood circulation to an injury for problems such as a sprained ankle or patella tendonitis. Acupuncture can be used to release muscles such as the levator scapulae (neck pain), rhomboids, or para spinal muscles (back pain).
