ACUPUNCTURE

Acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, and energy-based exercises are all important components of Chinese medicine. Chinese medicine enhances the body’s innate capacity to self-modulate and heal. Originating thousands of years ago, it is one of the oldest forms of healing known in the world.
In the past two decades, acupuncture has grown in popularity in the United States. According to the National Health Interview Survey millions of Americans have tried acupuncture.
Research has shown acupuncture is effective in providing the following benefits:

  • Relieves pain
  • Regulates hormones in the brain to improve mood
  • Modulates blood pressure and heart rate
  • Reduces inflammation
  • Boosts immune system
  • Promotes whole body healing

In other words, acupuncture facilitates healing and recovery by systemically regulating the body to help us recover from illness.
