Acupuncture is mind-body medicine, used to treat both physical and mental-emotional concerns. It is the Chinese Medicine practice of inserting tiny needles into specific acupuncture points on the body to promote health and combat disease. Practiced for over 3000 years, each acupuncture point has a specific purpose and a predictable result.
Unlike needles used to give injections, acupuncture needles are flexible, and extremely fine, approximately the diameter of a single human hair. Of course, only single-use, sterile, disposable needles are used.
Acupuncture is generally not painful, and treatments are usually quite relaxing.
