What is acupuncture?

An ancient practice that encourages the body to heal itself through the manipulation of qi, the energy that runs through every living thing. When we experience ailments, illnesses, diseases, and other imbalances, it is believed that our qi is being blocked. 


Acupuncture is used to help with:


  • Mental health issues

  • Chronic pain

  • Nausea 

  • Menstrual cramps

  • Toothaches 

  • Headaches and migraines

  • Labor pain

  • Lower back pain

  • Neck pain

  • Osteoarthritis

  • Respiratory issues

  • & much more


How does it work?

The role of acupuncture is to assist and unblock stagnant qi by inserting fine, sterile needles into specific acupuncture points on our bodies that connect to meridians, which can be described as internal channels that carry our qi organ to organ and system to system. These anatomical locations are chosen by your acupuncturist based on your diagnosis in order to manipulate your qi to loosen and flow smoothly once again.


Current Western biomedical research shows that acupuncture stimulates our biochemical responses via the nerves, helping the pituitary gland produce chemicals that can alleviate inflammation, reduce stress, and improve our overall well-being.

Acupuncture needles are sterilized, stainless steel, one-time use disposable needles that range in size, but are typically no bigger than a human hair. While you may feel a faint sting from the needle insertion, acupuncture is typically a painless treatment.

Acupuncture is typically a painless treatment.

Your acupuncturist will guide you with calming breathing techniques to ease any nerves

or fear of needles.
