About Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a modality of treatment that has been employed in healthcare for thousands of years, with its origins in east Asian medicine. The method of treatment utilizes sterile, single use acupuncture needles, which are inserted through the skin into acupuncture points, by a trained and licensed practitioner in order to affect therapeutic change in the body.

Acupuncture points themselves are functional anatomical sites found in muscles and connective tissue. When acupuncture is performed by a trained and licensed professional, such as a licensed acupuncturist (L.Ac.), the needles are manipulated manually for therapeutic purposes. Acupuncture has been proven to promote the body’s natural healing by treating a variety of endocrine, circulatory and systemic conditions.

Leading national and international health organizations, including the National Institute of Health and the World Health Organization, recognizes that acupuncture can treat numerous conditions, including the following:

  • Addictions
  • Anxiety
  • Arthritis
  • Asthma
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Colitis
  • Common Cold
  • Constipation
  • Depression
  • Dizziness
  • Diarrhea
  • Digestive Problems

  • Shoulder Pain
  • Sinusitis
  • Sleep Disturbance
  • Smoking Cessation
  • Sore Throat
  • Stress
  • Tennis Elbow
  • Trigeminal Neuralgia
  • Urinary Tract Infection

In general, the National Institute of Health has found that the modality of acupuncture has substantially lower incidence of adverse effects than many drugs or accepted medical procedures used for the same conditions. This makes acupuncture a low-risk adjunct treatment strategy for many conditions.
