Acupuncture

Back Pain / Migraine Headaches / Seasonal Allergies?

These and many other conditions can be treated with acupuncture. The success rate of acupuncture treatments is about 70% regardless of the problem. Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese medicinal art, refined to its modern form, involving the insertion of small needles into various points of the body to achieve a desired therapeutic effect. Treatments typically last 45 to 60 minutes. Six or seven weekly treatments are usually needed to gauge effectiveness in a patient.
