Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine

Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine has been practiced in China for several thousand years. It is the oldest complete system of medicine. It involves inserting sterile, one-time-use, thin needles into specific areas of the body to induce therapeutic results. Acupuncture works by stimulating the circulation, connective tissue, and lymphatic system; releasing endorphins (feel good chemicals); and through anesthetic nerve fibers.

There is alot of research on how acupuncture works on the body and its use in treating disease, although, there is still alot to be learned. Many conditions have been proven to respond successfully to acupuncture according to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) including, but not limited to, post-operative and chemotherapy nausea and vomiting, nausea of pregnancy, post-operative dental pain, addictions (smoking, etc.), stroke rehabilitation, headaches, menstrual cramps, eczema, tennis elbow, fibromyalgia & chronic fatigue, low back pain & sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome, and asthma. It is safe and effective for a wide range of conditions.
