Non-drug, non-surgical treatment of pain and a variety of other conditions.
Acupuncture is a broad form of medical care that involves the expert placement of very fine, FDA-approved, sterile needles to stimulate specific points and centers in the body while the patient relaxes completely for the entire session — typically 20-30 minutes.
