WHAT IS ACUPUNCTURE?
Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese medicine-based approach to treating a variety of conditions by triggering specific points on the skin with needles. Acupuncture is a minimally invasive method to stimulate nerve-rich areas of the skin surface in order to influence tissues, gland, organs, and various functions of the body.
Each acupuncture needle inserted in very specific points along the body can elicit a certain response from the body. This response involves stimulation of the immune system, promoting circulation to the area, wound healing, and pain modulation. Contemporary research on acupuncture relies mainly on this theory.
Acupuncturists at Peakform Wellness are highly trained to also incorporate soft tissue therapies to further promote relaxation, modulate pain and allow the body to achieve it's full healing.
