BALANCING YOUR ENERGY
The main theory behind this ancient practice is that your body has a life energy called qi. This energy becomes imbalanced when not treated and when it does it causes health problems. To counter the symptoms and revitalize your body we insert small needles to stimulate your circulation. By manipulating these energy pathways, acupuncture restores your energy balance and helps treat a wide range of symptoms from pain to digestive issues. Take your life back without unnatural drugs or surgery. It’s all possible here at the[clinic].

Acupuncture is the insertion of needles in specific points of the body and it has the ability to stimulate various biochemical and physiological conditions. Acupuncture induces the release of endorphins (the body’s natural pain-relieving mechanism). When done properly, it can promote an increase in blood circulation, a decrease in inflammation and a relief from pain in affected areas of the body.
Acupuncture can treat a myriad of conditions for a variety of situations such as:
- Pain: acupuncture can help treat conditions that cause pain such as lower back pain, sprains and strains, whiplash, headaches etc.
- Gastrointestinal disorders: this includes constipation, abdominal bloating, diarrhea and more.
- Cancer: acupuncture can help treat chemotherapy induced nausea and swelling.
- Neurological disorders: this includes Multiple Sclerosis, Cerebral Palsy, symptoms of stroke etc.
- Respiratory conditions: allergies, asthma, bronchitis etc.
While acupuncture can be done on its own, it can also be done in conjunction with other therapies. Some therapies that serve as great complements to acupuncture are:
We use new disposable needles for every treatment – they come packaged and sterilized, we use them once and then they are properly disposed of.
Acupuncture is typically considered as a comfortable treatment. The needles are very fine and metallic, making them quite painless when inserted. Individuals do experience acupuncture differently, but most report feeling no pain or very minor discomfort as the needles are inserted. You might experience a mild aching sensation or warm feeling around where the needles are inserted.
One of the lesser known facts about acupuncture that there are almost no side effects and/or complications from its use. Most patients find that the treatments cause minimal discomfort, and is sometimes even considered as relaxing. When conducted by properly trained practitioners that use the appropriate techniques, acupuncture is a safe course of treatment. However, make sure to inform your practitioner of your health and medical history, if you are pregnant or could possibly be pregnant before doing any acupuncture.
Yes, acupuncture is safe during pregnancy. In fact, it is a safe and effective treatment for many conditions caused by pregnancy, such as morning sickness, hip pain, sciatica and more. During each stage of the pregnancy, there are certain points that will be used and others that should be avoided. This is the proper protocol in order to ensure the safety of both the patient and the fetus.
Most people who undergo acupuncture treatment see a significant difference in one to two treatments, but some take longer to respond depending on the condition being treated. Usually acute injuries get treated as soon as possible and treatment can occur as often as daily after the initial diagnosis. Chronic conditions may need repeat maintenance treatments. How often you need to be treated all varies on your condition and how well you respond to treatment.
