What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a health science used to treat pain and dysfunction in the body. Its roots (5000-7000 years old) come primarily from China. Early Chinese physicians mapped an energy network (meridians) located just beneath the skin. These meridians work with all of the body's systems - circulatory, nervous, muscular, digestive. When this network is blocked or weakened, the entire harmony of the body is disrupted, resulting in pain and dysfunction. Acupuncture stimulates the specific meridian points on the body, helping to restore harmony and function.

The World Health Organization states that acupuncture is effective in over 100 conditions. Conditions that we treat the most include acute & chronic pain, migraines, tension headaches, neuralgia, bedwetting, asthma, allergies, skin conditions, carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow, high blood pressure, fatigue, and anxiety.

Acupuncture is also very effective with addiction control of smoking, overeating, alcohol, and drugs. The number of treatments required depends on whether the condition is acute or chronic in nature.

Dr. Bill utilizes sterile technique with disposable acupuncture needles. He can also do a form of acupuncture using a laser, with no needles, which helps with children or people with a fear of needles.
