Why Acupuncture

Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine are an untapped resource for alternative medical care here in the United States. Even though Acupuncture has grown in popularity, there is still a lot of mystery surrounding it which keeps many people from initially trying it. Unfortunately, this blocks their path to a whole different realm of healthcare that would truly benefit them. 

Many people use acupuncture to relieve pain throughout their body, including for migraines, back pain and arthritis. Studies have also shown that acupuncture may be a successful treatment option for a variety of conditions, including immune system issues, infertility and the effects of menopause.
