An acupuncture treatment focuses on relieving pain and present symptoms as well as strengthening the immune system and placing the body in a more harmonious and balanced place. For a more in depth explanation visit our page “What is Acupuncture?”
Acupuncture needles are sterile, one time use only needles. They are no bigger or coarser than a human hair. When used correctly they stimulate the body to balance and heal itself. The government requires acupuncturists to follow very strict sterilization procedures. In addition, presterilized acupuncture needles are manufactured, packaged, and shipped in sterilized containers to ensure compliance with the law.
Other forms of treatment include: acupressure, cupping, electric stimulation, heat lamps, herbal therapy, and moxibustion.
