Acupuncture is the insertion of tiny needles into the body and has been used for more than 2000 years. Acupuncture locally relieves pain by relaxing tight muscles and engaging lax muscles. It also activates the circulation, nervous system and immune system to locally and systemically reduce inflammation and improve homeostasis. In the mental emotional realm, acupuncture improves mental clarity, reduces stress and anxiety while improving mind body integration, causing you to feel more present in your body and more relaxed in your emotional experience.
While acupuncture is commonly used for pain and stress reduction, it is also effective for treating women’s and men’s health concerns, digestive disorders, sleep disturbances and infertility and more. Please feel free to schedule a complimentary consultation with one of our Acupuncturists at SANTÉ, if you have specific health concerns that acupuncture may treat.
