Acupuncture Science: Acupuncture involves inserting very thin needles into the skin at specific points on the body.
This traditional Chinese medicine practice originated thousands of years ago and is based on the premise that needle insertion into points on the body restores the flow of qi or the body’s energy to promote healing, reduce pain, and encourage relaxation.
Acupuncture addresses various health conditions, including pain caused by arthritis or injury. Depending on the type and severity of pain symptoms, treatments can help reduce the pain for days or weeks.
Individuals can expect to notice an improvement in symptoms shortly after treatment, though some may require several treatments before noticing an improvement in pain reduction. Acupuncture is often used as a complementary therapy, a treatment given in addition to conventional treatments, such as medication and/or physical therapy. #acupuncture science
