Acupuncture is an ancient, all-natural, and successful form of holistic medical treatment. Originating in China and one of the oldest healing systems in the world, acupuncture helps to restore your body's balance and improve your overall health.
Acupuncture involves the insertion of tiny needles, strategically placed at various points in the body to provide a powerful healing effect. It does so by encouraging the smooth flow of blood and energy, breaking up "blockages" associated with health problems and medical conditons. The energies produced by acupuncture activate responses in your body’s immune, circulatory, nervous and endocrine systems, and help the body to heal internally
There is virtually no side effects when acupuncture needles are administered properly. Acupuncture needles are sterile, disposable (used only once) and are regulated by the FDA. The patient can watch as the needle is taken from the sealed packet prior to insertion and view its disposal into the sharps container following withdrawal. Our acupuncturists are licensed by the New Jersey State Medical Board and certified by a national governing board.
Acupuncture is virtually painless. The typical responce to needle insertion is comforting and restorative. It should never be painful, but some minimal sensation is indicative of a therapeutic response. Our acupuncturists are experts in making sure your experience is as pleasant and rewarding as possible.
