What Is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is an ancient healing modality that has been used for over 2500 years in East Asia to treat multiple conditions- from the common cold to things as complicated as fertility and autoimmune issues. It involves the use of tiny needles, as thin as a hair, which are inserted into superficial skin, subcutaneous tissue, and muscles to regulate energetic pathways known as fascia pathways or “meridians” in the body. Acupuncture can be used either as a primary or supplementary method to help you feel better and reach optimum wellness to improve your quality of life.

Acupuncture improves the body’s functions and promotes the natural self-healing process by stimulating specific anatomic sites--commonly referred to as acupuncture points, or acupoints. The most common method used to stimulate acupoints is the insertion of fine, sterile needles into the skin. Pressure, heat, or electrical stimulation may further enhance the effects. Other acupoint stimulation techniques include: manual massage, moxibustion or heat therapy, cupping, and the application of topical herbal medicines and liniments.
