What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a versatile treatment that is very common in Chinese medicine. The Ancient Chinese held a strong belief that there is energy that flows through our bodies and this energy affects the way we are and the way we act. It can also affect your health as well, so when the energy is blocked, it can cause real problems. The blockages are broken down by inserting very fine needles into the body, stimulating the muscles as well as helping to restore the natural balance and energy flow.
Acupuncture is considered to be an alternative form of treatment and it is supported by the WHO and the NIH as well. The FDA has also shown its support for the treatment and this has, in turn, led to it being accepted by major healthcare providers and insurance representatives.
What Should I Expect?
Acupuncture lasts about an hour in general and in some instances, it may also include electrical stimulation. You may feel some relief after the very first treatment but normally the best results are achieved between treatments 5-10, and this is especially the case if you suffer from a chronic condition.

No prescription for physical therapy? No problem.
The ability to visit a physical therapist without a prescription or referral is called Direct Access.
Direct Access allows you to go directly to a physical therapist without the need for a physician prescription or referral. Now, all fifty states, and the District of Columbia have made a ruling enabling patients “direct access” to physical therapy services and programs.
