Reduces Stress

Acupuncture balances the sympathetic nervous system (“fight or flight”) to reduce stress and promote healing

Improves Circulation

By promoting circulation in the body, acupuncture improves function where it’s needed

Increases Neuroplasticity

Acupuncture interacts with the brain to encourage new neural circuits that help reduce areas of blockage and stimulate organ function

Decreases Pain

Acting as a natural analgesic, acupuncture releases natural endorphins and interrupts pain signaling in the brain

Reduces Inflammation

Acupuncture regulates the immune system and reduces pro-inflammatory markers in the body

Balances Your Body Chemistry

Acupuncture works on the pituitary and hypothalamus glands to regulate hormone release in the body improving the body’s biochemical responses
