Chiropractor / Acupuncture

Acupuncture involves the insertion of very thin needles through your skin at strategic points on your body. Acupuncture is a form of traditional Chinese medicine, and is most commonly used to treat pain. It is also being used for overall wellness, including stress management.

Traditional Chinese medicine explains acupuncture as a technique for balancing the flow of energy or life force — known as chi or qi (chee) — believed to flow through pathways (meridians) in your body. By inserting needles into specific points along these meridians, acupuncture practitioners believe that your energy flow will re-balance.

In contrast, many Western practitioners view the acupuncture points as places to stimulate nerves, muscles and connective tissue. Some believe that this stimulation boosts your body’s natural painkillers.
