Acupuncture
 
Acupuncture is one of the oldest and most complex of the medical arts. It is based on theories and observations made over thousands of years about a vital life force that flows through our body. This life force is considered an energy that flows through pathways called meridians, similar to an electrical current passing though a conductor. By manipulating the electrical current, we can change the intensity of light or sound. Similarly, certain points located along the energy pathways in our body can be used to manipulate associated energy fields. Acupuncture is the means through which these points are manipulated. Trauma, stress, environment, improper diet, or medications are some of the factors that can cause an imbalance in the natural flow of body energy, causing us to not feel well. Acupuncture focuses on correcting that imbalance and restoring our health.
 
What is a treatment like?
Extremely fine, hair-thin, flexible needles are placed at specific points on the energetic pathways leading to the organs, muscles and nerves of the body. When the needles are inserted you may experience a sensation of tingling or warmth. Some people feel no sensation at all. People are surprised to find that treatments are actually quite relaxing.

A treatment usually takes one hour. Acupuncture is scheduled as often as three times a week or as little as twice a month. As symptoms improve, fewer visits are required. You should discuss your treatment program with your acupuncturist as each individual case is unique.
