What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a technique in which practitioners stimulate specific points on the body—most often by inserting thin needles through the skin. It is one of the practices used in traditional Chinese medicine.

There are more than 361 acupuncture points (only about 10-15 are used per treatment) known to influence body function.

Over 2500 years old, this time-tested method of preventative care and addressing acute and chronic problems speaks for itself by alleviating conditions normally addressed by drugs or surgery in Western medicine.


Acupuncture can treat symptoms like:

  • Muscle spasms and pain
  • Chronic back problems and pain
  • Headaches, including reducing the frequency and intensity of migraines
  • Neck pain
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Knee pain
  • Allergies
  • Digestive problems
  • Mood/Depression
  • Starting labor in full term pregnancy
