Acupuncture

Rachel Wilson  L.Ac., Dipl.Ac., 

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is an ancient form of Traditional Chinese Medicine. It has become widely used in the U.S. today. It is thought to help balance the flow of energy along pathways throughout your body. Placing fine needles at certain points along these pathways are thought to remove blockages. This may help rebalance the flow of energy. Moreover, this, in turn, may help ease pain and allow healing. Acupuncture is used to treat a wide range of health issues such as the back, neck, and joint pain, nausea, headaches, and more.
