What Is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a way of balancing the body. This is done by placing thin needles into plotted points on the body. An acupuncturist is able to locate these points on the body for the related condition or symptom.

Despite what many might think, treatment is painless. Patients find they feel more relaxed after the treatment. Still, some patients may be nervous about needles. At Beyond Wellness Chiropractic Center, P.C., our skilled acupuncturist offers needle-free acupuncture. This technique provides you with the same benefit without the needles.

A recent survey found over 3 million adults and 200,000 children in the U.S. have had acupuncture to help relieve a symptom or condition. Because of its low side effects, it has been the treatment of choice for many doctors across the country.
