What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture involves insertion of thin needles into the skin at functionally identified points on the body with the goal of achieving therapeutic effect.

How does it work?

  • Increases the healing of injured tissues
  • Improves blood flow to tissues and bodily structures, increasing circulation, which helps increase the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the area.
  • Restores motor activity and strength
  • Encourages normal recruitment patterns of muscles
  • Decreases adhesions of tissues
