Acupuncture is a fluid process that is crafted to address your particular health and wellness goals. It is a safe and effective treatment using fine needles carefully inserted at key points along the energetic channels. Acupuncture works by moving stagnant energy or supplementing energy in deficient areas by stimulating the body’s natural self-healing abilities. Acupuncture promotes healing by improving blood circulation, reducing local inflammation and relaxing tight muscles. Acupuncture can relieve pain by re-establishing communication between damaged tissues and the central nervous system. Some of the conditions acupuncture will be effective for include: fatigue, stress, chronic pain, women’s health, musculoskeletal, endocrinology, respiratory, cardiovascular & neurological issues, headaches, pregnancy including prenatal and postpartum, digestion, sleep support, immune boosting, emotional/psychological support and release, well-being and general maintenance. Our acupuncturists employ expertise with TCM (Traditional Chinese medicine) 5 elements & Mayan Abdominal Massage.
