wHAT IS Acupuncture
If you’re new to holistic healing as a type of treatment, acupuncture can seem a bit terrifying. However, It’s been studied and practiced for over 2,500 years and many swear by it. Some even going so far as to call it a “miracle” to improving their quality of life because it’s said to be able to treat everything from depression and allergies to morning sickness and cramps.
This minimally invasive approach treats a variety of conditions by triggering specific points and stimulating nerve-rich areas of the skin surface in order to influence tissues, gland, organs, and various functions of the body. Each needle produces a tiny injury at the insertion site, and although it’s slight enough to cause little to no discomfort, it’s enough of a signal for the body to respond. This response involves stimulation of the immune system, promoting circulation to the area, wound healing, and pain modulation.
