Benefits of Acupuncture

Acupuncture treatment and Chinese herbs can be used to aid in a wide variety of conditions - often more effectively than drug treatment, and without side effects.


Acupuncture is one pillar of Traditional Chinese Medicine.  In modern times, it involves the insertion of exceptionally fine filiform (solid) needles into the body which aim to elicit specific physiologic responses.  Modern research shows that the insertion and subsequent manipulation of an acupuncture needle generates a healing cascade that effects everything from the body's circulatory system to it's immune and nervous system.  While the entire breadth of changes have yet to be defined, studies have already elucidated active mechanism(s) such as influences on the connective tissue, cytokine stimulation, adenosine modulation, neuromodulation, opioid production, and endorphin production!
