"If you are tired of health problems you can't get rid of with conventional medicine, such as Chronic Headaches, Low back Pain, Arthritis, Allergies, Insomnia, etc...? You may have found an answer with Acupuncture. Typically 4 to 12 hair-like thin needles are placed on selected Acupoints along the channels running throughout one's body to open up and remove blockages. And then the flow of Qi & Blood get restored in balance to reduce pain or relieve symptoms. Many of my patients experience changes from the first treatment.

Acupuncture in 11596 - is it right for me?
Acupuncture is based on the concepts of oriental medicine or traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and is one of the oldest healing practices in the world. 11596 acupuncturists are health care professionals who evaluate and treat the many conditions, aches and pains that respond to acupuncture.

Acupuncturists insert very fine acupuncture needles into the body. The purpose of the needles is to stimulate acupuncture points or meridians. The needles do not inject any substance into your body and are so fine as to be virtually impossible to feel. In some cases, acupuncture may be accompanied by electrical stimulation or the burning of moxa, a form of heat therapy. Or use acupressure, where physical pressure is applied by hand or elbow to trigger points with the aim of clearing blockages in these meridians.

'Accupuncture' and 'Accupuncturist' are common mis-spellings.
