With its roots in Eastern Medicine, the benefits and impact of acupuncture and acupressure (performed without needles) are astounding, particularly when treating those with difficult conditions. This surprisingly gentle treatment acts as a natural painkiller. It helps to restore normal muscle tone and function, and alleviate symptoms associated with stubborn conditions. Benefits may include improved sleep and creating a greater sense of overall wellbeing.
Acupuncture involves the insertion of very thin needles through your skin at strategic points on your body. Sterile, disposable needles used in acupuncture are regulated by the FDA.
Acupressure is the stimulation of these same points on the surface of the skin. Both are equally effective and are used often used as part of your personalized care plan.
Acupuncture/acupressure have also been shown to decrease stress and anxiety, decrease digestive problems, increase energy and improve sleep.
