WHAT IS ACUPUNCTURE?
North America is finally accepting acupuncture as a complementary practice that supports Western medicine. Acupuncture is known to boost the immune system, regulate the nervous system and bring the endocrine system into balance.
Acupuncturists use needles to stimulate specific points near or on the surface of the skin that affect our organs and nervous system. Traditional Chinese medicine describes this as a technique for harmonizing pathways in the body and stimulating the immune and endocrine systems.
ACUPUNCTURE BENEFITS COMBINED WITH MASSAGE
Acupuncture balances the natural flow of energy in the body. Acupuncture also helps your body by relieving emotional and physical blocks. Meanwhile, massage therapy works to relax your muscles, leaving your body more receptive to the acupuncture treatment.
Same day acupuncture and massage therapy actually works to maximize the effectiveness of both treatments. Together, they relax your body, alleviate pain and provide long-term benefits.
