Your Acupuncture Journey:

Frequently Asked Questions

1. What conditions can acupuncture treat?

6. How do I schedule an acupuncture appointment?

Acupuncture can effectively treat a wide range of conditions, including pain management, stress reduction, insomnia, digestive issues, allergies, and more. Our practitioners will assess your individual needs and tailor a treatment plan to address your specific concerns.

2. How does acupuncture work?

Acupuncture works by stimulating specific acupuncture points on the body, which in turn activates the body's natural healing mechanisms. This stimulation triggers the release of neurotransmitters and hormones, including endorphins, serotonin, and oxytocin, which promote pain relief, relaxation, and a sense of well-being. Acupuncture also stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system, inducing a state of relaxation and reducing stress levels. Additionally, the insertion of fine needles into muscles helps to reduce muscle tension and release tightness. This process can also alleviate pressure within the muscle, leading to increased blood and lymph circulation to the affected area, promoting healing and overall wellness.

3. What should I expect during an acupuncture treatment?

During an acupuncture treatment, you will lie comfortably on a treatment table while the practitioner inserts fine, sterile needles into specific acupuncture points on your body. You may experience a sensation of warmth, tingling, or relaxation during the treatment. Most people find acupuncture to be a relaxing and enjoyable experience.
