Acupuncture is an ancient system of healing used to restore and maintain health and well-being for thousands of years. Acupuncture has always taken a holistic view of the patient, using exact points to strengthen the connection between your mind and body. The fundamental goal of this ancient medicine is to help promote a dynamic balance between the mind and body resulting in a happier, calmer and healthier life.


Acupuncture pin points the strong effect emotions have on the body, and how physical conditions affect mental and emotional health. Spark-like connections are made between specific emotions and precise functions of the body. 


Our Licensed Acupuncturists are guided by this deep understanding of the mind-body connection to diagnose and treat patients to relieve health issues and restore optimal health. 


How does Acupuncture affect the Mind-Body Connection?


Contemporary research is showing how Acupuncture works in the brain and body to affect both physical and mental health. The extensive mind and body results of Acupuncture can be understood through the dynamic interaction of the nervous system. 


In our modern society, many of us spend so much time racing to work, and fulfilling demanding schedules, all of which utilize the fight-or-flight nervous system, our sympathetic nervous system. Acupuncture helps us relax and shift into our parasympathetic nervous system or rest-relax-digest nervous system. By activating the parasympathetic nervous system, you are able to help the body reset, rewire, and heal. It is beneficial for creating a healthier body, calming the mind, and improving your emotional well-being. Acupuncture has had notable effects on the nervous system, digestive system, cardiovascular system, endocrine system, and immune system. 


There is no wonder world-class research institutions and hospital systems such as Johns Hopkins, Harvard, and the Mayo clinic are using these studies to support the use of Acupuncture for many of their patients. 


How does Acupuncture Promote a Sense of Calm?


Acupuncture therapy is proven to be extremely effective at reducing chronic stress by regulating the hormones related to the stress response, hence calming the nervous system. 


A healthier body and mind naturally result in a deep sense of calm and relaxation. In fact most people experience this sensation during each Acupuncture session. Every session becomes a meditative like experience that promotes a healthier body-mind connection. 


Through balancing the body and mind and restoring overall balance, Acupuncture can help you embrace optimal wellness. 


Acupuncture is a mind-body health practice with benefits that can last a lifetime. Just two treatments a month can impact sleep, mood, digestion, immunity, and more. Even when symptoms go away, regular Acupuncture is always recommended to prevent symptoms from coming back and help maintain excellent overall health.
