Acupuncture is one of the main forms of treatment in traditional Chinese medicine. The acupuncture technique involves the usage of very thin, sterile, stainless steel needles that are inserted into specific points along the meridian to disperse blockage and mobilize the body’s natural immune system. Acupuncture is not painful. Many patients will fall asleep during their appointment while the needles are being placed, and will wake-up feeling relaxed and refreshed!
