Why Acupuncture?

The use of Acupuncture and Chinese medicine dates back thousands of years. 

 

Acupuncture is the practice of inserting very fine, single-use sterile acupuncture needles into specific points in the body. Points are chosen based of off symptoms, diagnosis, palpation and the time of year, to name a few. 

 

When things get “stagnant”, this causes a disrupted flow of energy throughout the body, with many down stream effects. Acupuncture helps to resolve this stagnation and encourages the body's natural healing capabilities. Stagnation is the inhibition of our bodies natural processes. As an acupuncturist, I seek out these areas where things get stuck, and get them moving again. This stagnation can occur from environmental factors, physical injury, mental or emotional stress, poor diet, sedentary lifestyle and more.
