Acupuncture is a form of pain relief that involves using tiny needles to prick the skin and other tissues of the body. Acupuncture is used to alleviate pain and treat other physical, mental, and emotional conditions. These extremely thin needles are inserted into our patient’s skin at specific points of the body, all at certain depths determined by our professionals. These insertions allow energy to flow properly and bring the body back into balance. Acupuncture is great for alleviating pain, reducing nausea, and lessening the pain level and potential painkillers patients need once the surgery is over. Patients suffering from depression, anxiety, and cancer treatment-related symptoms are encouraged to try acupuncture to seek pain alleviation.
