Acupuncture treatment is a calming and relaxing experience. It improves mood, increases energy, reduces stress levels, helps you sleep better, boosts the immune system and has the potential to heal the body systems. Very fine needles are placed at strategic points on the surface of the physical body to elicit a response within the bio-luminous field, also known as the bio-field in Western science. This response is then transmitted through a filamentous network of electromagnetic conduction referred to as the acupuncture meridians. Within this system there may be many frequencies that do not adequately serve the body in maintaining a state of optimal health. When this information is received by the brain molecules of neurotransmission are delivered to various tissues and organs within the physical body. These correct chemical changes elicit a state of balance known as homeostasis. Homeostatic balance brings about the bodies innate ability to heal itself.
Many of our patients get treatment even when they are not ill or in pain, just as a preventive measure to stay healthy. All needles used in acupuncture treatments are sterile, disposable, hair thin and virtually painless.
Acupuncture is recognized by the National Institute of Health (NIH) and the World Health Organization (WHO) to be effective in the treatment of a wide variety of medical conditions.
