Acupuncture is a medical art, which has existed for thousands of years and has effectively treated a myriad of physical and emotional complaints. The World Health Organization recognizes evidence-based acupuncture as proven for dozens of diseases, symptoms and conditions. The needles are sterile, single-use 32-40 gauge needles which are like tiny cat whiskers! The painless insertion points are placed based on your reported symptoms and underlying health patterns. Once placed, you will relax on a comfortable massage table for 15-20 minutes, perhaps with a heat lamp and a blanket. Most patients report an immediate change in pain levels and a sense of relaxed well-being after treatment.
