Acupuncture

Acupuncture is the insertion of sterile needles into biological points on the body, providing it with instructions to recalibrate its system and bi-phasically regulate the body, bringing it back to wellness.

How Does It Work?

Acupuncture works by providing neuro-feedback via the nervous system, which affects the release and regulation of hormones, such as dopamine or seretonin. These hormones not only help regulate your emotions but also have physiological impacts over the body. Acupuncture also helps to increase circulation through microdoses of inflammation as well as, increases immunity through puncturing the dermis, thus driving the body to create more white-blood cells.
