How does acupuncture work?
The ancient Chinese proverb referenced above simply explains how acupuncture works. Acupuncture promotes and reestablishes free flow within the body. In Chinese medicinal theory, there are twelve main meridians that run throughout the body. Sometimes, these meridians get blocked, which in turn gives us a sensation of pain, or can even cause other diseases to form. Acupuncture needles help to unblock these areas, as well as treat the underlying condition that originally blocked the meridians. Therefore, this not only helps your symptoms disappear, but also keeps them from returning in the future.

Do you do dry needling?
acupuncture points are over trigger points and have been needled this way for thousands of
years. Kacy has taken extra courses in trigger point or “dry” needling.
