Acupuncture is an essential component of traditional Chinese medicine. A series of very small needles are placed on different parts of the body to correct imbalances established in your acupuncture intake. The patient may experience some mild achiness or heaviness during the treatment indicating that it is an effective treatment.
It is an excellent treatment for vertigo, tinnitus, nausea, chronic pain, TMJ, anxiety, and labor induction. Each treatment is tailored to your individual symptoms and needs and lasts 20-30 minutes.
