Acupuncture is a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) technique that works on the vital energy or ‘qi’ that flows through energy meridians in the body. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) views health as the constantly changing flow of vital energy, or chi along 12 energy meridians in the body. When this chi starts moving disharmoniously (gets congested or over stimulated), imbalance starts to surface in the form of symptoms. The goal of acupuncture is to assess these energy imbalances and use micro-fine needles at very precise acupoints along the meridians to balance the energy. This helps restore harmony at the deepest level of the body, mind and spirit. If you are interested in receiving any of the Acupuncture treatments offered at BODYWORX SPA, your first step would be to set up an appointment for your initial treatment. This will help the Licensed Acupuncturist create a customized, safe, beneficial and effective treatment plan for each individual. We look forward to serving you!

Acupuncture is used with good success to help people stop smoking, and is useful in treating the full range of addictions and addictive behavior. Acupuncture works to adjust cravings by balancing your body’s brain chemistry and is also useful to help heal the damage caused by smoking. The treatments are unique, from an acupuncturist’s perspective, as there are many fixed protocols talked about to help people stop smoking.

Essentially, sports medicine applies western medical and scientific knowledge to prevent, recognize, assess, manage and rehabilitate injuries related to sport, exercise or recreational activity. Sports medicine is targeted not only to the professional athlete but the person with an athletic or active lifestyle to enhance health, fitness and performance. The objective of Sports Medicine Acupuncture is to address the athlete’s healing potential thereby strengthening the patient, and as a result, decreases injury rehabilitation time. Getting the athlete back to their desired activity, enhancing performance and preventing re-injury through treatment and education is the goal.

What is acupuncture?
Acupuncture is part of an Eastern medical system that has been used to diagnose, treat, and prevent illness for over 4,000 years. Because of it’s effectiveness, acupuncture is now gaining broad popularity in the U.S. as a holistic healthcare option for physical, emotional, and mental disharmony. With this gentle, yet effective approach, the body’s own restorative response is stimulated to promote healing. Traditional Chinese Medicine views health as the constantly changing flow of vital energy, or chi, along 12 energy meridians in the body. When the chi starts moving disharmoniously (gets congested or over stimulated), imbalance starts to surface in the form of symptoms. The goal of acupuncture is to asses these energy imbalances and use micro-fine needles at very precise acupoints along the meridians to balance the energy. This helps restore the harmony at the deepest level of the body, mind, and spirit.
