Acupuncture is over 3,000 years old, and is one of the most commonly used medical procedures in the world. It is a gentle and natural approach to health, and it is a method of encouraging the body to promote natural healing and balance.
How it works
Acupuncture treatments encourage the bodies natural healing processes. This is done by gently inserting fine needles at very precise acupuncture points in order to prevent and treat disease. Acupuncture points stimulate the nervous system to release chemicals in the muscles, spinal cord, and brain to reduce inflammation and nourish the immune system. Treatment is virtually painless and creates a feeling of relaxation.
The World Health Organization (WHO) lists approximately 150 conditions that can be treated by acupuncture.
This list includes:
- Urogenital Disorders
- Circulatory Diseases
- Pain Management
- Stress Management
- Migraine Reduction

“Results from a number of studies suggest that acupuncture may help ease types of pain that are often chronic such as low-back pain, neck pain, and osteoarthritis/knee pain. It also may help reduce the frequency of tension headaches and prevent migraine headaches. Therefore, acupuncture appears to be a reasonable option for people with chronic pain to consider. However, clinical practice guidelines are inconsistent in recommendations about acupuncture.”
