Acupuncture Q & A

What Is Acupuncture Treatment?

Acupuncture is a type of treatment that originated in China more than 3,000 years ago. Acupuncturists use extremely slim needles, placing them in key areas on the body to alleviate pain in a natural way. The needles create a balance in the body’s energy, which allows the body to return to its optimal pain-free state.

There are several types of acupuncture. In moxibustion, moxa taken from dried mugwort warms key areas and helps with smooth qi energy flow. In auricular acupuncture, points on the outer ear are stimulated for healing. In cupping therapy, suction is used to help stimulate blood flow and promote healing.

What Types of Conditions and Illnesses Can Acupuncture Help With?

Acupuncture can help with a very wide range of pain, illnesses, and conditions. These include lower back pain, headache pain, fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, menstrual cramps, digestive problems, insomnia, PMS, neck pain, and much more.
