Acupuncture is a part of the traditional Chinese medicine-based approach to treating a variety of conditions by triggering specific points in the body through the insertion of very thin needles. It is a minimally invasive method to stimulate nerve-rich areas of the skin surface in order to influence tissues, glands, organs, and various functions of the body.
An acupuncture needle produces a tiny injury at the insertion site that causes little to no discomfort, it’s enough of a signal to let the body know it needs to respond. This response stimulates the immune system, promoting circulation to the area, wound healing, and pain modulation. Acupuncture is effective for a variety of conditions.
Numerous scientific clinical studies on the benefits of acupuncture show that it treats conditions ranging from musculoskeletal problems (back pain, neck pain, and others) to nausea, migraine headache, anxiety, depression, insomnia, and infertility.
