Acupuncture is a natural solution to health issues

Acupuncture is a natural medical treatment that mobilizes your body’s healing and immune response. Acupuncture was developed thousands of years ago to be a preventative system of medicine. While best known for pain, acupuncture can treat a wide range of conditions, including infertility, sleep issues and digestive disorders.

There is no magic or mystery to acupuncture. It is a medical treatment that influences the body’s physiology (how the body functions). Acupuncture is able to access the body’s own internal healing mechanisms in ways that no other treatment can.

Effects of Acupuncture

  • Influences serotonin and beta-endorphins (feel-good chemicals)

  • Improves blood flow

  • Improves immune system function

  • Influences the areas of the brain responsible for pain perception

  • Improves immune system function

  • Influences the nervous system
