What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture, one of the most popular traditional Chinese medicine treatments, is the insertion of needles into superficial structures of the body (skin, subcutaneous tissue, muscles); usually at acupuncture points (acupoints) and their subsequent manipulation; aiming at influencing the flow of qi. Acupuncture is a complementary health approach informed by modern medicine but built on a foundation of more than 3,000 years of Chinese medical practice. 

Benefits of Acupuncture

  • Release pain naturally
  • Safe and almost no side effects
  • Cost effective – lower cost compared to other treatment options
  • Effective for a variety of conditions
  • Can treat multiple conditions at the same time; no need to schedule appointments with multiple specialists (for example, it is common practice to treat a patient's knee pain and low back pain during the same treatment)
  • A National Institutes of Health (NIH) study in 2008 showed that approximately 40% of the U.S. population has used some form of alternative medicine, with 629 million visits to those providers annually
