While acupuncture is relatively new to the United States, it is actually an ancient practice that dates back thousands of years. The study of acupuncture is very complex and diverse but to break it down simply; your body is made up of many meridians o f energy that flow throughout it. This flow of energy keeps you healthy and well. When you get a blockage of energy in a meridian it can lead to health problems or various conditions. By placing a needle in a point along that meridian, it will draw more energy there and remove the blockage.
Acupuncture can be used to treat countless things such as: headaches, low back pain, digestive problems, anxiety, and appetite control. During the needling process, endorphins are released as well which elevate the mood and reduce pain. Not only is acupuncture great for physical health, it is also fantastic for mental health. During the 20 minute treatment time, you get to relax and take some well deserved time for yourself. Chiropractic and acupuncture go together amazingly to help treat the whole mind and body.
