    Acupuncture uses the insertion of extremely fine needles into specific acupuncture points.  Chinese medicine believes there are energy pathways, called meridians, which traverse all over and through the body, connecting the internal organ systems with the external muscles, bones and skin.  Acupuncture points are located on the surface of the body along the meridians.  By stimulating these points we can affect the flow of internal energy.  We can adjust the energy flow by strengthening the weak areas and relieving the congested, blocked areas.  For example, needling the point on the lower leg (Stomach 36) exerts great effects on the digestive system.

    People experience acupuncture differently, but most feel minimal or no pain.  Some people feel energized after the treatment, some feel very relaxed.  It is a very safe procedure when done properly by a qualified practitioner using disposable, sterile needles.  There are minimal to no side effects, and no interference with any medications.


   In the past two decades acupuncture has grown in popularity and has been accepted into mainstream medicine in the U.S..  Many clinical trials and studies have been conducted to determine the effectiveness of acupuncture.  The evidence of its positive effects has been significant that the National Institutes of Heath (NIH) made a consensus statement in 1997 endorsing the use of acupuncture.  A committee of the United Nations World Health Organization (WHO) has also issued a list of over 50 diseases that could be effectively treated by acupuncture.
