Acupuncture - General
Acupuncture has been around for many thousands of years. At the heart of Acupuncture lies the concept of "Qi", pronounced "Ch-ee". Qi can be defined as energy that flows throughout the body, usually in the presence of blood. We can utilize acupuncture needles to direct the flow of Qi throughout the body, thus correcting any imbalances that are present and creating symptoms.
As Chiropractors, we already practice a holistic style of health care focusing on the 'whole body' versus parts. In addition, we practice TCM (traditional Chinese acupuncture) style acupuncture which means we focus on the body's imbalances and source of the problem versus symptoms.
Almost all new patients to Acupuncture note how surprised they are that the treatment isn't painful and how relaxing it is. They will commonly find themselves in a state of deep relaxation during acupuncture sessions and many sleep. By restoring your body's natural balance, Acupuncture can not only eliminate unwanted pain, it often leads to a sense of refreshment and increase in energy!

IS IT SAFE?
When performed by trained physicians using disposable needles and trained in 'clean needle technique', acupuncture is very safe. Chiropractic physicians who perform acupuncture have undergone vigorous training as part of their schooling to function as primary physicians, which means we are capable of accurately diagnosing conditions which may require a referral to a medical specialist. We freely refer back forth with many medical specialties and our philosophy is one that utilizes the best parts in all of health care to provide you with the best and safest care.
