Acupuncture is the practice of using small needles inserted at very precise points on the body to promote natural healing and improve functioning. Acupuncture stimulates nerves, muscles and connective tissues, prompting increased blood flow to injured areas of the body, boosting the body’s natural healing process. Acupuncture provides a low risk treatment option that can be beneficial for pain syndromes due to an injury or associated with chronic degenerative diseases.
