Acupuncture Q & A

Evia Medical Center

What is acupuncture?

Acupuncture involves inserting very thin, sterile needles into your skin at very specific points on your body. An acupuncture session is usually painless and is most commonly used to treat pain. It is also used for overall wellness, including stress management.

Acupuncture has been around for hundreds of years as part of traditional Chinese medicine. However, Western practitioners commonly use it today to boost your production of natural painkillers and enhance the body's recuperative power and immunity to promote natural healing. It also improves physical and emotional health and overall well-being.

At Evia Medical Center, acupuncture with electric stimulation and far infrared heat treatments are also available.
