Acupuncture utilizes the insertion of tiny needles along the body’s energy pathways to restore natural balance and improve health.
Research shows that acupuncture can help relieve a wide range of physical and psychological conditions. It can increase the body’s ability to release its own natural painkillers; endorphins and serotonin. A course of treatment benefits many ailments including musculoskeletal pain, migraine headaches, stress, anxiety, depression, sleep issues, allergies, skin conditions and asthma.
