Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a safe and effective way

to relieve pain.

Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine

With Acupuncture, as in most natural therapies, several sessions are usually necessary.

Jenny uses Traditional Chinese Acupuncture, and Distal Needling Acupuncture where she incorporates both within your treatment plan.

Having evolved over thousands of years, acupuncture is one of the oldest continually practiced medical modalities in the world. A treatment involves the insertion and manipulation of flexible, hair-thin needles at specific points along the body’s meridian pathways, which are channels through which the body’s energy flows. Acupuncture is a safe, effective, chemical-free form of medicine that promotes the body’s self-healing abilities.
