Acupuncture is a safe and effective therapy that can help manage issues such as anxiety, depression, and insomnia. Additionally, MRI studies have shown that acupuncture can aid in pain control.
This traditional therapy involves the insertion of thin needles into specific locations of the body to stimulate the central nervous system.
This triggers the release of neurotransmitters like serotonin and opioid peptides, which can help alleviate various conditions.
As a therapy confirmed by modern science, acupuncture has helped countless individuals improve their health and wellness.
Our treatments are individualized based on your unique concerns and symptoms. We typically recommend weekly visits until your symptoms improve.

How does Acupuncture work?
Acupuncture stimulates the central nervous system to increase the release of serotonin and opioid peptides. The release of these neurotransmitters can manage conditions such as anxiety, depression and insomnia.
Is Acupuncture safe?
Acupuncture can be a safe adjunctive therapy to pharmacotherapy, psychotherapy, and/or natural therapies.
We often suggest weekly treatments initially, depending on your specific situation, until your symptoms improve.
How many treatments will I need?
This always depends on the individual. Our treatments are tailored to each patient based on their particular needs and concerns. Acute conditions may only take a few visits, whereas chronic conditions will likely take longer.
Generally speaking, it’s ideal to have acupuncture once a week or every other week until symptoms improve, then treatment can be spread out as the body becomes more able to maintain balance. How long it takes the treatment to stabilize and hold, depends on your particular circumstances.
Some tips to get the most out of your Acupuncture treatment:
Ideally, you should eat about 1 -2 hours before you arrive.
Make sure to wear loose, comfortable clothes to each appointment.
