Acupuncture is a centuries-old practice that involves stimulating specific locations on the body through the use of thin, sterile needles. These acupuncture points are located along numerous overlapping channels, called “meridians”, which circulate an energy known as “Qi” throughout the body. Qi, believed to nourish internal organs and tissues, can alter impulses in the nervous system that travel through the body, promoting healing. By stimulating acupuncture points with time-tested techniques and indications, our specialists can promote and balance the flow of Qi, relieve pain, reduce stress, and restore health. Acupuncture is a safe, natural alternative and/or supplement to traditional American medicine.
