At Acupuncture Works, we use effective techniques rooted in over 2,500 years of science and traditional Chinese medicine. Our goal is to help our patients reach their health care goals safely, naturally, and effectively. Acupuncture therapy involves inserting very thin needles through the skin at strategic points on your body. A key component of traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture is most commonly used to treat pain. Increasingly, it is being used for overall wellness, including stress management.
