Acupuncture is an age old treatment for "realigning the body's energy" in order to help the body heal itself. For science people, this means that acupuncture stimulates the body's nervous system in order to stimulate the body's natural healing response. Although acupuncture is often considered "alternative medicine," there is a lot of science behind why and how it works. There are a number of conclusive studies now that prove that acupuncture is not only effective, it is also safe. I can say with confidence that acupuncture DOES work and it is not all in your head!
There are varying degrees of relief that people may find from acupuncture. Unfortunately, acupuncture cannot treat everything in every case. We will always be honest with you about what kinds of results you can expect to see based on your specific case. With that being said, EVERYONE we have treated has had some form of relief after receiving acupuncture. For some people the relief was immediate and lasting, for most they felt better or had fewer symptoms, and then required more visits to see long term results.
