Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a branch of Chinese medicine which utilizes fine needles that are painlessly inserted on specific points in the body in an effort to restore balance and to promote the flow of vital energy.

The notion that needle stimulation, often in a part of the body far removed from the injured area, can restore health is alien to conventional thinking. However, in 1998, a committee of experts chosen by the National Institute of Health, presented a large body of evidence which attested to acupuncture’s efficacy as a pain relief therapy.  In light of this evidence, the NIH has endorsed acupuncture as an effective treatment for nausea and some types of pain.

Years of research, coupled with empirical observation, have demonstrated acupuncture’s benefits to reach far beyond its effect on pain.  Evidence suggests that acupuncture is effective in the treatment of several syndromes including Fibromyalgia, gynecological disorders, drug addiction, and hypertension, to name a few.

Acupuncture is a licensed and regulated healthcare profession and practitioners are considered primary care providers the State of Florida.  A large number of insurance companies are taking notice of acupuncture’s benefits and often cover services by licensed practitioners.
