Acupuncture is an ancient, natural healing therapy that can treat a wide variety of health concerns. With the use of hair-thin needles, it helps the body heal itself by creating internal balance and harmony. Acupuncture treats the root cause of a health concern (why it is happening in the first place) instead of treating symptoms (like taking ibuprofen for pain). Because acupuncture treats the root cause of health concerns, it can treat many physical and mental/emotional concerns. Issues such as pain and arthritis, digestive issues, neurological conditions, migraines, female concerns, allergies, and insomnia (to list a few), and mental/emotional concerns as well, including depression and anxiety, can start to alleviate without the side effects of pharmaceuticals. The important thing to remember is that you are doing the healing; your body is facilitating the healing you experience. Acupuncture is what helps to initiate and guide the healing process.
