Acupuncture

Does acupuncture really work?

If I made a dollar for every time I heard this...

Acupuncture

The short answer is yes; it works for a lot of acute and chronic conditions. This is an ancient medicine that blends very well with modern medicine mostly because Chinese medicine doctor's/practitioners over thousands of years have figured out how to identify the root causes of disease. Then, by focusing on symptoms, pulse & tongue diagnosis, palpation and more, a practitioner can pinpoint how to allow the body to get back to balance. 

It's an incredibly cool way to relax the body and allow it to heal what needs healing.
