"But I'm afraid of needles..."

Usually the first thing people say after the first needle is inserted is, "Thast's it?" They are surprised at how relaxed they feel afterwards, and wish they could stay longer.

Acupuncture treats internal conditions like digestive disorders, gynecological issues and headaches, as well as musculoskeletal complaints (pain, stiffness, aches, etc). Call to find out if we can help.
