Acupuncture Therapy

The Practice of Balancing Energy for Optimal Health

Acupuncture Therapy ScottsdaleAcupuncture is the practice of inserting very thin, needles into specific points throughout the body to stimulate energy flow in specific channels where the energy is located.  Inserting these thin needles, the doctor is able to manipulate the points to help the body release hormones and endorphins, and stimulate blood flow thus resulting in positive healing effects, as well as pain control.

Acupuncture is a very useful method for treating many conditions.  As well as being a very effective method of pain control, we stimulate certain acupoints to balance the energy in acupuncture meridians – or energy pathways – to restore health to an ailing organ or gland.

Auriculotherapy – a type of Acupuncture using points on the ear – is very useful in habit control, such as quitting smoking as well as pain control.

The side effects of acupuncture are considerably less adverse than when compared to other medical procedures such as surgery or pharmaceuticals.
