HOW ACUPUNCTURE CAN HELP YOU ACHIEVE YOUR WELLNESS GOALS
Acupuncture can help women, men, teens and children. In medicine, there are basically two models of healthcare: (1) the disease model whereby a patient seeks medical help for an illness, and (2) the wellness model whereby a healthy patient seeks medical assistance to maintain their good health. In terms of the wellness model, patients seek out Acupuncture to maintain their wellness and prevent disease, and in this respect they may come for a treatment once a week or every other week or during the change of seasons.
In terms of the disease model, Acupuncture can treat a wide variety of conditions, such as those listed below. If your condition is not listed below, please contact us to learn how Acupuncture can possibly help you.

GENERALLY, HOW DOES ACUPUNCTURE WORK?
Modern scientific research, through organizations such as the National Institute of Health (NIH), shows that Chinese Acupuncture accesses the nervous system, initiating a chain of electrical events in the body. As the body communicates through electrical impulses, Acupuncturists stimulate points along the meridians (“highways” of “Qi” in the body). In other words, this stimulation helps to clear the road and open up the lines of communication, restoring balance to the flow of Qi (energy). This helps to increase communication from the nerves to the brain, and from the brain to the organs and tissues of the body. Another function of Acupuncture is to increase circulation of blood flow in the body. Why is this important? Blood brings oxygen to tissues as well as white blood cells which help heal damaged areas of the body.
