What is it? And how does it work?

Acupuncture can be used to alleviate pain and improve function and energy. This ancient technique uses needles or sound to target specific points on the body where “qi” (energy) collects and flows in pathways, or meridians, connecting the surface to internal organs through a body-wide network. Today, this is viewed as the interstitium and fascia, the sheets of connective tissue which unite your nervous, skeletal, and muscular systems. Whether you need stress relief, a seasonal tune-up, or rehabilitative focus, an acupuncture treatment will help you be your best self.
