Acupuncture is an ancient healing method used in Chinese medicine. It can be used for hormone conditions, depression and anxiety, or for pain.
This therapy involves insertion of small needles into the body in various locations. The location of each needle is determined by the Chinese diagnosis specific to the individual. These points move what is known as "Qi" or life-force, this alleviates stagnation throughout the body and restores balance. Alternatively, acupuncture can be used locally to decrease pain and inflammation or to release trigger points/muscle knots.
Acupuncture can be effective at treating many health concerns including:
- Hormone imbalances
- General or localized pain
- Disc issues
- Digestive concerns
- Muscle tightness and imbalances
