What is the purpose of acupuncture?

Acupuncture gently nudges the body back into what we call “homeostasis,” or “homeostatic balance.” This means that all of the organs of the body function as they should and they all communicate properly with each other. Acupuncture also increases blood flow helping injured areas heal, as well as increases oxygen levels in the brain.

So if I have a headache or a migraine is it because of the lack of blood flow?

Not always, but that is certainly one cause of headaches in many people. Headaches may be caused by poor circulation, spinal misalignment, infection, injury, etc.

A comprehensive health history will be the helpful first step in determining the problem.  We will ask lots of questions in order to begin to give us a clear picture of the root causes of your headaches and then determine the treatment plan that best works for you.

What conditions does acupuncture treat?

Most anything you can think of!  Here is a short list of some of the most common reasons people choose acupuncture.

Does acupuncture have any side effects?

The term “side-effect” has a negative connotation. There are NO negative side-effects with acupuncture. There are numerous positive benefits and “by-products” of acupuncture!!

Yes, you sleep better!  You feel smoother; not quite so irritable. Combined with Chinese herbs you have a real sense of well-being, mental clarity, more energy and better digestion.  Sometimes you can get a very small bruise at the site where the needle was inserted. That’s it!!

Do I have to have to have a health issue to have acupuncture?

No, Acupuncture is designed to keep your immune system strong and balanced.  Regular treatments are recommended as well as Chinese herbs to battle our busy lifestyles and keep us healthy.  It is called PREVENTION! Remember the old saying.

“An Ounce of Prevention is Worth a Pound of Cure”

5 Elements in acupuncture-5 Organs-5 Seasons-Therefore we recommend 5 Treatments a year MINIMUM
