What Is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture was developed in China over 2,500 years ago and has been used successfully to treat a wide variety of illnesses. It is now used worldwide. Acupuncture works by stimulating designated points on the body via the insertion of very fine needles. These points correspond with the functions of internal organs and other bodily processes as defined by the principles of Chinese Medicine.  

What  You Can Expect

Treatment is provided by a Licensed Acupuncturist L.Ac. and consists of the insertion of three to five sterilized disposable needles into specific points in each ear. Each point stimulates an internal body function such as the central nervous system, kidneys, liver, and lungs – reducing your craving for alcohol or drugs. Needles remain in the ear for 30 to 45 minutes.

Once the needles are in place, you will find the treatment quite relaxing. Acupuncture stimulates the body to produce endorphins, which help relieve stress and symptoms. With regular treatments, many people report sleeping better, feeling more rested, and having more energy. Acupuncture supports the recovery process at every stage to help you establish balance and harmony in your life.

How Acupuncture Works for

Acupuncture supports the body and mind in the withdrawal process from drugs and alcohol as well as in the long-term recovery. All addictive substances respond well to acupuncture including nicotine, caffeine, and sugar. Acupuncture treatment eases the discomfort of withdrawal symptoms so that mental and physical stability are achieved as soon as possible, allowing you to pursue counseling, Twelve Step programs, education, job skill training, and other support systems necessary for maintaining your sobriety
