General Acupuncture Information

Acupuncture, a traditional Chinese method, is utilized to alleviate various health conditions, including pain throughout the body. This practice involves inserting thin, hair-like steel needles into specific acupoints on the skin, stimulating sensory and motor nerves in both the skin and muscles. These needles work to balance the body's energy, or qi, prompting the release of natural chemicals that facilitate healing and symptom reduction. By activating the pathways connecting the nervous system, musculoskeletal system, and endocrine system, acupuncture promotes the circulation of energy (Qi) along meridians throughout the body.

Neuro Acupuncture

Neuro Acupuncture, particularly in the style employed by Neuro Acupuncture Associates, utilizes a specific form of scalp acupuncture known as Zhu’s, considered highly potent and effective. This micro-system is combined with body and ear acupuncture, motor points, electro-acupuncture, scar tissue reduction, Qigong, tuina, and other physical therapy methods. This comprehensive approach aims to expedite the restoration of the neurological system. Almost all types of neurological deficits, ranging from loss of the five senses to facial and body tics, as well as various forms of paralysis affecting the face, limbs, and internal organs, can be treated.
