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:
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.
After a 15-20 min session of acupuncture, patients with physical injuries experience the following benefits, pain relief, reduced swelling, and increased mobility.
Relieve cancer-related pain: acupuncture is a powerful tool for relieving aches and pain caused by cancer, nausea, and swollen joints.

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.
Needles may be heated or mild electric current may be applied to them. Some people report acupuncture makes them feel energized. Others say they feel relaxed.
Acupuncture can treat an array of health conditions.
