What is acupuncture?
Acupuncture involves the insertion of very thin needles through the skin at specific points on the body. Acupuncture stimulates the balance and flow of Qi (pronounced “Chee”) energy that in Traditional Chinese Medicine is considered vital to health. When the body is healthy, Qi energy flows smoothly along the various pathways that comprise the body. When there is a deficit or obstruction of flow/balance of Qi, this is when pain or various other symptoms arise. Acupuncture stimulates the release of endorphins, the body’s natural pain-relieving hormones. It helps to reduce pain, inflammation, and increase circulation within the body.

What conditions can be treated with acupuncture?
Acupuncture can be effective in the treatment of a wide variety of injuries and conditions such as:
– Acute and chronic whiplash
