Acupuncture is a form of healing which focuses on elevating a patient’s overall well being. By inserting fine needles into the skin at specific acupressure points along the body, health problems are able to be treated.

Practitioners will determine the depth and location of the needles based on the nature of the illness and the patient’s weight, size and age. Individuals may feel some heaviness, cramping, tingling, distention or an electric sensation in the surrounding area of the needle or surrounding areas. It is not a painful treatment.

Lying on a massage table, the treatment site will be uncovered. Depending on the nature, severity and duration of the ailment, the number of treatments required for healing, will vary.
