What is acupuncture? Acupuncture stimulates the nervous and hormonal systems in the body. Sterile disposable needles are gently inserted into acupuncture points or trigger points to stimulate the local cells and hormones for healing. The end results are pain relief and reduction of inflammation.
Is acupuncture painful? It depends on the patient! For those who have never received acupuncture before, our chiropractors will take extra time to explain the process and what to expect. Most describe the sensation as a prick. Some may experience an ache, while others may experience complete relaxation!
