What Is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a therapeutic technique used in Traditional Chinese Medicine. It involves the painless insertion of fine needles into the skin which causes a variety of physiological changes in the body. This therapy is great for treating, and often eliminating pains such as chronic back or neck pain, knee pain, migraines and headaches. Acupuncture can also be used to treat a wide variety of other issues such as insomnia, stress, infertility, digestive problems, and much more (see this list from the World Health Organization about some of the other issues we can treat). At East Side Acupuncture we also use other techniques such as Chinese medical massage into our treatments. We also incorporate Chinese herbal medicine and dietary recommendations to give you even more safe and effective health care options. Patient education is also very important to us so we strive to help our patients understand their bodies better so that they can live a healthy life.
