Acupuncture began in ancient China with the discovery that stimulating specific areas on the skin affects the physiological function of the body’s many neurological and chemical processes. Today, acupuncture has evolved into a proven scientific system of healing that works to restore balance in the entire body rather than healing individual parts.
Acupuncture functions like your body’s immune system when it responds to a cut by forming a scab. Needles let your body’s immune response know that certain areas need attention. Using a variety of techniques, acupuncture can help restore and maintain health by stimulating specific anatomical points in nerves, muscles and connective tissues. This stimulation boosts the activity of your body’s natural painkillers and increases blood flow.
At Natural Healthcare Center, our licensed acupuncturists recognize that two people can have the same problem but experience different symptoms. We’ll spend time determining where energy is blocked and recommend a specialized treatment plan to get your body back in balance and accelerate the healing process.
