Acupuncture is an extremely safe modality and has been around for thousands of years, been used on billions of people and is the fastest growing medicine in the world. It is one component of Traditional Chinese Medicine which also includes herbs, diet, massage and exercise.
The insertion of fine needles into different anatomical points on the body causes healing reactions to occur including stimulation of the immune system, relaxing tight muscles and releasing endorphins to reduce pain and calm the mind. The needles are prepackaged, sterile, used once and disposed immediately after treatment. Most people find acupuncture to be painless and report a feeling of relaxation and well being.
