Acupuncture stimulates your body’s healing processes, by use of very fine, sterile needles to specific acupuncture points over the surface of the body. Acupuncture is used to encourage natural healing, promote blood flow, improve mood and energy, reduce pain and inflammation, and improve body function. Acupuncture needles are typically left in place for 20-30 minutes.
Conditions that may respond well to acupuncture:
- Work-related stress
- Low back pain
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Tennis elbow
- Rotator cuff injuries
- Muscle pain
Most extended health benefit plans cover acupuncture.
