frequently asked questions

What is acupuncture?

Acupuncture stimulates the body’s own natural healing mechanisms that work to maintain a state of balance, known at homeostasis.  Our bodies naturally produce a wide variety of pain-relieving substances, anti-inflammatory chemical agents, hormones, immune enhancers and so forth.  Acupuncture helps the body use its own healing resources and processes to naturally heal an illness and/or disease.
