What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a treatment method that assists the body to promote natural healing and to improve functioning. This procedure is done by inserting very thin needles at precise acupuncture points. Heat and Electrical stimulation may also be applied over the needles to increase the effects of the acupuncture treatment. Acupuncture can also be done without needles  using the heat and electrical methods.
How does Acupuncture work?

According to the ancient Chinese theory, channels of energy called meridians run in regular patterns throughout the entire body. Meridians flow like rivers through the body to nourish the tissues. However, a disturbance in the flow of this energy can back up in part of the body like a dam and restrict it from moving. The acupuncture treatment restores the proper movement of this energy and allows healing of the corrupted tissue.

Cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy and radiation are often fatigued, experience a lack of appetite and weight loss, and may become depressed. For cancer patients experiencing these and other side effects, acupuncture is extremely beneficial.    read more

The Chiropractic Lifestyle

Ask your Doctor of Chiropractic for more information about a care program that may include specific spinal adjustments, exercise recommendations, nutritional advice or other conservative methods of care based on your health history, age, current condition and lifestyle.

The Doctor of Chiropractic is effective in preventative and wellness care.
The anatomical focus of Doctor of Chiropractic on the human spine has created the perception of the Doctor of Chiropractic as just a "back doctor."
