a What is Acupuncture? Acupuncture is an ancient form of Traditional Chinese Medicine that helps balance the body. Acupuncture uses thin needles inserted into the body at specific points to alleviate stress, pain and an array of other diseases. Acupuncture is relatively painless although the patient may feel a small dull feeling in some spots. This feeling is a sign that the needles are working. Typically a session will last one hour. Please wear loose fitting clothing to your appointment and eat a light snack before your session. After your treatment, be sure to drink plenty of water and take time to relax.
