WHAT IS IT
Acupuncture is an ancient, safe and effective treatment that involves inserting very thin needles into the skin at varying depths and at specific points on the body. It’s great for tight muscles and trigger points. Electro-acupuncture is used to amplify the effects of acupuncture.
Acupuncture helps the body heal itself. It stimulates nerve-rich areas which in term may stimulate the body’s natural healing abilities and promote physical well-being.
