ACUPUNCTURE is a versatile and effective option for the treatment of many health concerns including pain, internal disorders, and emotional imbalance. Very fine sterile single-use needles are inserted into specific points on the body using a gentle technique to restore your natural state of health and balance. Many recognized disorders can be treated with acupuncture. Even in cases of advanced disease requiring treatment by conventional medicine, acupuncture can be an effective supportive therapy for both mind and body. Additionally, those who simply don’t feel well, but who have no verifiable disorder, often receive great benefit from acupuncture. See the FAQ page for a more detailed list of disorders that acupuncture can address.
