Acupuncture

We believe in the body’s natural healing properties

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and acupuncture have been practiced for thousands of years the world over.  TCM is a practice of medicine that works to gently restore organ functions and bodily processes, leading your body to a healthier, more balanced state. TCM can be used for healing a wide variety of health conditions during most stages of life and does not interact with any medications, making it a safe & supportive medicine for many.

Acupuncture is a non-invasive, alternative medical treatment option that is founded on classical Chinese Medicine practices.  It helps to promote natural healing and functioning in the body and it involves the use of inserting very fine needles into precise acupoints throughout the body.  These points help to stimulate signals throughout the body and establish energy and biochemical balance improving overall wellbeing and health.

Studies have shown that acupuncture promotes the release of endorphins, the body’s natural pain killer, into the body.  Acupuncture is helpful to reduce pain and to treat many different conditions such as shoulder pain, elbow pain, low back pain, sciatica, hip pain, neck pain, migraines/headaches, anxiety & stress, and irritable bowel syndrome.  Acupuncture at Waterdown Village Chiropractic Group has shown to speed healing of acute injuries such as ankle sprains.
