Acupuncture has been improving the health and wellbeing of people around the world for more than 3,500 years.

Your body tries to heal itself every day through homeostasis. Acupuncture stimulates the process of self-healing in a directed way through the insertion of needles.


Your body is made up of a series of meridians that transport blood, oxygen, and energy throughout your body.

When you are healthy and your body is in balance, you feel great physically and mentally. When your sick or dealing with a chronic health condition, there is a blockage or series of blockages that are prohibiting your body from naturally healing itself.

With acupuncture, we identify the root cause of your issue and use tiny needles to stimulate specific points in your body. By stimulating the nerves in those areas we send a signal to your brain, which sends immune cells, hormones and increased blood circulation to the area where the needle is placed. Blood flow will increase in the organs and glands that are connected to that acupuncture point, helping heal your body from the inside out.

How Acupuncture Treatment Works In Your Body


Does Acupuncture Hurt?

You may or may not feel a little pinch when the needle is inserted. The needles are about as thick as a single human hair, so any pain is minimal. Patients typically say they don’t notice the needles; they are more aware of the immediate relaxation they feel after the needles are inserted.

What Is An Acupuncture Point?

An acupuncture point is a specific spot in your body that has the ability to communicate with organs and glands. When the hair-thin needles are gently placed in acupuncture points, imbalances within your body can be healed.

"Please tell me this feeling never ends. I am in deep relaxation. I've never quite felt like this before. I think some call this heaven? I feel like everything is in slow motion-ish and I could care less about anything. Please say this lasts forever."
