Acupuncture is the use of needle therapy to encourage the body to promote healing and improve overall function. Acupuncture stimulates the nervous system by inserting sterilized stainless-steel needles into specific points on the body.

By doing this, one is able to affect organ and tissue function, sensory function, and circulation. Clinically, acupuncture increases oxygen and blood flow; stimulates both the endocrine and nervous systems; aids cellular repair; and encourages the secretion of the body’s natural pain killers.
