Holistic Medicine For Better Health
Acupuncture has been widely accepted around the world and practiced for more than 2,500 years. It is a traditional Chinese treatment used to prevent disease, treat illness, reduce muscle tension, improve sports performance and enhance a person’s well-being. A painless procedure, acupuncture is based on the principle that illness may result from imbalances in the body’s natural energy system, Qi (pronounced “chee”).
Using tiny, sterile, single-use needles placed just under the skin at specific points, acupuncture restores harmony by releasing the body’s own pain-blocking and anti-inflammatory mechanisms. Those suffering from acute and chronic pain, allergies, anxiety, fibromyalgia, migraine headaches, addictions, menopausal symptoms and other illnesses may benefit from this ancient, specialized technique.
Typically, acupuncture has no side effects. Most often, people feel relaxed or even fall asleep during treatment. Usually patients leave in less discomfort and are more functional then before they received acupuncture. While relief may be felt after only one treatment, it is essential to recognize that acupuncture is most often effective when used in a series. The length and frequency of treatments are individually tailored to your specific needs and adjusted as necessary.
Acupuncture packages include $64 for a single visit or $370 for a package of five. For more information or to schedule an appointment, please call (269) 552.2348.
