Acupuncture works by promoting a person’s innate ability to heal by harmonizing the environment inside the body. It stimulates healing brain chemicals in addition to ensuring smooth and harmonious flow of Qi (oxygen) and blood. It is a natural, safe and effective form of medicine that has virtually no side effects. Acupuncture can help with physical and psychological concerns while always viewing the person as a whole. Patients who receive regular acupuncture treatments report becoming sick less often, the ability to recover from illness quicker, maintaining healthy relationships with others and being able to more effectively manage their own health and wellness.
