Your Natural Health
At Acupuncture Works, we use Traditional Chinese Medicine, rooted in 2,500 years of science & medicine to help our patients reach their health care goals safely and effectively. Acupuncture involves the insertion of very thin needles through your skin at strategic points on your body. A key component of traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture is most commonly used to treat pain. Increasingly, it is being used for overall wellness, including stress management.
Traditional Chinese medicine explains acupuncture as a technique for balancing the flow of energy or life force — known as chi or qi (chee) — believed to flow through pathways (meridians) in your body. By inserting needles into specific points along these meridians, acupuncture practitioners believe that your energy flow will re-balance.
In contrast, many Western practitioners view the acupuncture points as places to stimulate nerves, muscles and connective tissue. Some believe that this stimulation boosts your body's natural painkillers.
Alternative medicine works on all levels – body, mind, and spirit and uses various modalities to conquer health issues. Our educated practitioners are dedicated to helping our patients get their lives back.
Feeling Good is the Point
Our goal is to treat patients using the traditional techniques of Acupuncture along with natural herbs, bodywork, massage, and diet.
