the issue and treat it using acupuncture needles and other tools. The theory is
that energy flows through certain meridians, or pathways, in the body and
corresponds to certain internal organs or body parts.
What is acupuncture and how does it help:
Acupuncture is a complementary medical practice that entails stimulating
certain points on the body, most often with a needle penetrating the skin,
to alleviate pain or to help treat various health conditions. "It would be really
interesting to see if acupuncture can help prevent cancer.
How long does it take for acupuncture to work:
On your first visit, your acupuncturist will suggest a course of treatment,
which can be anything from “we'd like to see you once a week for six weeks”
to “we'd really like to see you every day for the next four days.” This
suggestion is based on our experience with treating your particular condition.

Acupuncture is a cleansing and balancing of the whole body. As you heal,
these symptoms will pass, and you will begin to feel better. After your session,

What happens if acupuncture hits a nerve:
If a needle hits a small nerve, muscle, or blood vessel, you may feel some pain

form of dull aches or tingling sensations.

Acupuncture is recognized as safe and beneficial for many conditions, but it's not

the acupuncturists' style or school.
