What is acupuncture?

Acupuncture is an ancient practice developed thousands of years ago in China, and a key component of traditional Chinese medicine. Acupuncture treatment involves inserting hair-thin needles into the skin at specific points on the body, with the goal of balancing the body’s energy and accelerating natural healing processes. Though acupuncture was developed before modern medicine, it has been demonstrated to be an effective treatment for a wide range of conditions in modern clinical studies. There’s a reason this practice has lasted thousands of years, it works!

What conditions does acupuncture treat?

Acupuncture is an effective treatment for a wide range of health concerns. Common conditions that respond well to acupuncture include chronic pain, sports injuries, headaches, fatigue, and mental conditions including stress, anxiety, and depression. Acupuncture can also produce fantastic cosmetic results, such as rejuvenating the skin on the face and smoothing the appearance of cellulite. Acupuncture works to balance and heal both the body and the mind.

Does acupuncture treatment hurt?

When practiced by an acupuncturist as skilled as David, acupuncture is virtually painless. The ultra-thin needles seldom leave marks or bruising. Many patients are so comfortable and relaxed during acupuncture treatment that they fall asleep! There is no down-time required following treatment and patients can return to their normal activities immediately.

Is acupuncture treatment covered by insurance?
