Acupuncture is a time-tested, holistic medicine that can help to decrease pain and restore function + homeostasis in the body.
Acupuncture is a minimally invasive method to stimulate nerve-rich areas of the skin surface in order to influence tissues, glad, organs, and various functions of the body. Each acupuncture needle produces a micro-injury at the insertion site, and although it's slight enough to cause little to no discomfort, it's enough to let the body know how it needs to respond. This response involves stimulation of the immune system, promoting circulation to the area, wound healing, and pain modulation.
It is also helpful for internal conditions like anxiety, gastrointestinal problems, fertility, hormone optimization, thyroid issues, allergies, breaking up scar tissue, and much more.
For optimal results, acupuncture is often combined with other modalities such as herbal remedies and/or functional medicine.
