Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese healing method that uses fine sterile needles (about the size of a hair) to stimulate specific areas on the body called "acupoints". Different acupoints are used depending on each individual's unique condition.
The acupoints chosen for each treatment don't have to be near the area of complaint to be effective. For example, certain points on the back, forearm, and leg can be effective for shoulder pain. Although acupuncture can be used for a variety of conditions, it's most commonly used in the United States for pain.
We treat all types of painful musculoskeletal conditions by incorporating acupuncture to relieve pain, improve circulation, relieve stress and provide relaxation, and aid in the general wellness of our patients.
