Acupuncture is a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) modality that has been used for over 5,000 years to promote natural healing. Acupuncture has been utilized to treat all kinds of health conditions over this extensive period of time. It is a low risk option, with a proven track record of treating a variety of endocrine, circulatory, and systemic conditions. Acupuncture has beneficial physiological effects in the body. Research shows that by placing very small needles on certain areas of the body, endorphins and neurotransmitters are released. These feel-good chemicals can reduce pain naturally. In addition, acupuncture positively effects blood circulation, thereby decreasing inflammation and regulating the body toward homeostasis, which is a fancy word for balance.
