Acupuncture is an effective therapy that involves placing thin needles in various spots around the body. The mechanisms underlying how acupuncture works are still being studied. We do know the neural pathways and pain centers in the brain that are affected by acupuncture treatment. Acupuncture has been demonstrated to activate the body's own opioids as well as improving the body's sensitivity to opioids. Other biochemicals including ATP, adenosine, GABA and substance P have been found to be released by acupuncture stimulation. In a nut shell, Acupuncture stimulates the body to heal naturally and function better.

Has physical pain caused you to stop doing the things that bring you joy?

  • Is your back, neck, knee or sciatica causing you so much pain that is stopping you from riding bike or playing with your grand-kids?

  • Are headaches keeping you in a dark room so often that you’re missing precious time with your family or taking too many days off from work?

  • Do sinus infections leave you down and out and taking antibiotics more than you would like?

Perhaps it’s not so much of a physical ailment but rather an emotional discomfort.

  • Do you lay in bed at night, unable to fall asleep, going over and over things from the day or worrying about what might happen tomorrow?

  • Are you irritable and snappy with your kids, partner or co-workers?

  • Have you been stuck in a pattern of anxiety, depression or grief and see no way for the clouds to lift?

  • Is it some other physical or emotional issue that is causing you discomfort and suffering?

If you answer yes to any of these questions, acupuncture might be helpful for you.
