Acupuncture

Acupuncture involves inserting extremely thin needles through your skin at strategic points on your body.

Acupuncture can benefit individuals suffering from sports injuries, acute and chronic pain, headaches, and other conditions involving the neurological, muscular-skeletal, respiratory, digestive, genito-urinary and gynecologic and reproductive systems. Our program will also benefit individuals who are looking to reduce stress and/or maintain emotional balance and well-being.
