Medical acupuncture is the application of very fine, sterile needles to specific points in the body with the goal of reducing pain, swelling, and improving movement patterns or function. Other benefits from medical acupuncture include : improved blood flow, stress reduction, and improved nerve conduction. Acupuncture stimulates your immune system through "micro-trauma" to encourage your own body to heal the affected area.

Medical acupuncture is a safe and effective treatment for many conditions including: headaches, neck and low back pain, muscle sprains, carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow, tendonitis and bursitis.
