Why Acupuncture?

Acupuncture has been shown to offer several physical and mental health benefits. Part of traditional Chinese medicine for centuries, acupuncture can treat a wide range of health conditions. Acupuncture has been increasing in popularity in the West as more people experience its benefits and search for an alternative to invasive procedures and pharmaceuticals. Acupuncture is safe and has few side effects.

Acupuncture can help reduce chronic pain, including pain related to arthritis, headaches, knee pain, back pain, and more. A study by Memorial Sloan Kettering’s Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics shows that acupuncture is highly effective in treating pain and can offer an alternative to pain medications.  Many patients start to see the benefits of acupuncture after the first session. For most conditions, several sessions will be required to experience the full benefits of acupuncture.

Apart from the physical benefits of acupuncture, there are several mental health benefits, including decreasing symptoms depression and stress. Several studies, including those by the Anxiety and Depression Association of America (ADAA), have shown acupuncture techniques to be able to lessen symptoms of depression and anxiety. Acupuncture can also help improve sleep quality and can help treat sleep disorders, such as insomnia.
