Acupuncture

Acupuncture is the stimulation of points below the surface of the skin, by the insertion of thin needles.  The purpose of acupuncture is to modify pain and balance the body.

The benefits of acupuncture often include more than just relief of a particular condition.  Many people find that it also leads to increased energy levels, better appetite and sleep, as well as an enhanced sense of overall well-being.

  • Pain

  • Insomnia
  • Hypertension
