Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine that stimulates specific points on the body with the insertion of thin needles. Our practitioners use these points to stimulate nerves, muscles, and connective tissue in order to boost your body’s natural ability to ease its own pain. This process is generally pain free. Often our patients cannot feel the needles at all or experience only the mildest discomfort.

Acupuncture aids in pain alleviation and can be used to help treat a variety of conditions. Acupuncture is an excellent alternative medicine for those looking for natural healthcare options.

Acupuncture can be used to treat a myriad of diseases, disorders, and ailments. These can include tendonitis, headaches, chronic pain and fatigue, arthritis and joint pain, TMJ, chemotherapy discomfort, back and neck pain, menstrual cramps, respiratory disorders, and more.

Dry Needling

Dry needling is an excellent option for those suffering from trigger points, tight heart muscles, and sports injuries. If you suffer from sports related conditions such as overtraining, elbow or shoulder tendonitis, runner’s knee and more, you could greatly benefit from this technique.

Dry needling essentially uses a thicker gauge acupuncture needle to address a specific area of pain. The insertion of this needle releases the tugging or pulling of the nerve fibers that cause pain signals. This process releases the tension and the trigger point, resulting in pain relief.

For best results, we recommend between three and six dry needling sessions.

You Should Know

Often, sports and other related injuries are also treated in our office with cupping therapy, which can help to break up tissue fibrosis.

Before your dry needling, acupuncture, or cupping therapy, please remember to wear loose, comfortable clothing. These services are not covered by insurance and rate is dependent on area size and location. Please set up a free, zero commitment consultation to begin the process of receiving a personally designed care and financial plan.
