Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese tradition dating back more than 2000 years ago. This technique can use either pressure used by a human finger (acupressure) or insertion of a needle. The Chinese believe there is an invisible life force called chi that flows through your body on pathways called Meridians.
Acupuncture needles are hair-thin. People experience acupuncture differently, but most feel no or minimal pain as the needles are inserted. Some people are energized by treatment, while others feel relaxed. Our doctors have given many patients a lot of relief through acupuncture for conditions such as head aches, back pain, neck pain, shoulder problems, etc.
