What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a key component of traditional Chinese medicine that involves the insertion of very thin needles through your skin at strategic points on your body.
Acupuncture is most commonly used to treat pain, but it is increasingly being used for overall wellness, including stress management. Acupuncture is also thought to help improve circulation and increase the body’s overall energy levels.
Benefits of Acupuncture
Many people find acupuncture helpful for managing a variety of issues. In addition to pain relief, some people also find that acupuncture can help with anxiety, insomnia, migraines, and other problems.
