About accupuncture

The purpose of acupuncture is to treat a variety of health conditions through a natural and holistic means. By regarding the human body as a whole, rather than a collection of fragmented and disjointed parts, acupuncture seeks to not only remediate health problems, but promote and improve functioning of the body’s various systems and organs. In particular, acupuncture seeks to achieve three main objectives:

  • Pain relief
  • Immune system strengthening
  • Balance, harmony and integration of all bodily systems and organs, and their
    functions.

It’s important to understand that acupuncture is a process, which is why it’s very rare for a single treatment to achieve any lasting results. In China, for example, a common treatment protocol for chronic conditions is acupuncture every other day for three months! While few patients need this frequency of care, virtually every patient requires an ongoing course of treatment to get the results they’re looking for. At your first visit, we’ll recommend a treatment plan that reflects your specific situation and needs.
