Acupuncture

At ACA, Acupuncture is a significant component of our traditional Chinese medicine approach. We use acupuncture to relieve health conditions and symptoms, such as reducing pain and improving sleep, digestion, and emotional well-being.

For over 30 years, we have been successful at managing various conditions, injuries, and illnesses, including:

Pain Relief

Acupuncture has been used to treat aches and pains since 200 B.C. It can help improve the circulation of Qi (energy), relax muscles and tissues, increase local nutritional intake, and balance local structures.

Sport Injury

After a 15-20 min session of acupuncture, patients with physical injuries experience the following benefits, pain relief, reduced swelling, and increased mobility.

Weight Loss

After the initial consultation, we customize a plan using a combination of acupuncture, ear seeds, and herbal tea and base it on your body’s conditions.

Cancer

Relieve cancer-related pain: acupuncture is a powerful tool for relieving aches and pain caused by cancer, nausea, and swollen joints.

Woman's health

Traditional Chinese Medicine’s (TCM) view on gynecology is different from western medicine. Male and female organs, meridians, blood, and Qi (vital energy) have similar activities but females have special physiological structures.

Dermatology

In the TCM approach, pathological factors are represented by earthly elements. An excess amount of an element can result in the unique characteristics of a disease.

Acupuncture FAQs

What conditions may benefit from acupuncture?
There are a lot of conditions that can benefit from acupuncture. Please see the list on the right.

How does acupuncture affect the body?
Acupuncture points are believed to stimulate the central nervous system. This, in turn, releases chemicals into the muscles, spinal cord, and brain. These biochemical changes may facilitate the body’s natural healing abilities and promote physical and emotional well-being.

What does acupuncture feel like?
Acupuncture uses hair-thin needles. The needle is inserted to the point that produces a sensation of pressure or ache. Most people report feeling minimal pain to no pain at all.
