We are pleased and excited to announce that we now offer acupuncture. Acupuncture is a form of alternative medicine and a component of traditional Chinese medicine in which thin needles are inserted into the body to treat various other health problems.
National Institutes of Health studies have shown that acupuncture may help ease pain that’s often chronic, including back pain, neck pain, and knee pain from osteoarthritis. It may also be an effective prevention method for migraine headaches and could reduce the frequency of tension headaches.
