Acupuncture primarily involves the use of very fine needles to manipulate the bodies circulatory system, nervous system and facial layers to regenerate quicker and assist in helping the body through acute injuries and chronic recovery. Picture this: When you get a sliver, your body has the innate ability to eventually push it out on its own. This sliver has elicited a similar reaction that acupuncturists are triggering with their needles. Needles are inserted in specific points that create micro tears to signal the body to send receptors to that area thus creating a circulatory healing effect. Many patients have sought out the use of acupuncture for internal medicine as well as musculoskeletal disorders.
