Acupuncture has been an integral part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) for thousands of years, and in the last half of the twentieth century began to spread in popularity across Europe and North America.
Though scientific research still cannot explain exactly how Acupuncture works, there are numerous high-quality scientific studies that support that Acupuncturedoes offer significant therapeutic benefits.
Acupuncture can be used on its own, but is often used in combination with herbs, dietary changes, and self-care recommendations.
Single-use, disposable, sterile needles are inserted to specific points on the body, and retained for the duration of a session (typically 20-30 minutes). Many people who experience acupuncture for the first time are surprised at how they don’t experience pain when the needles are inserted!
