Acupuncture - General
At the heart of Acupuncture, which has been around for thousands of years, lies the concept of "Qi", pronounced "Ch-ee". Qi can be defined as energy that flows throughout the body. We can utilize this energy by placing acupuncture needles at specific points on the body and direct the flow of Qi, thus correcting imbalances that are creating problems.
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 at our clinic 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 even sleep. By restoring your body's natural balance, Acupuncture can eliminate unwanted pain and it often leads to a sense of refreshment and increase in energy!
We work with many different healthcare professionals and receive scores of medical referrals each and every month. Not only do they entrust us with their patients, many of them treat here as well.

Below is a list of commonly treated conditions/complaints:
This is just a list of COMMON conditions we see, so if your specific complaint or symptoms is not listed here, chances are we have seen people with your type of presentation or with something similar. As noted above, we get many referrals from primary care physicians and other health care specialists that are unique in their presentations and have often undergone significant care without resolution.

IS IT SAFE?
When performed by trained physicians using disposable needles and trained in 'clean needle technique', acupuncture is very safe. In over a decade of practice, we have NOT had encountered a single major problem with acupuncture. There may be some occasional light bruising where a needle has been placed, but it simply fades within several days.
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.
