What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medical practice that involves inserting thin needles into specific points on the body. These points are believed to be connected by pathways called meridians, through which the body’s vital energy, known as “qi” (pronounced “chee”), flows. Acupuncture aims to balance the flow of qi within these meridians and promote the body’s natural healing processes.
Acupuncture at Thrive Now is performed by trained practitioners using sterile needles.

Benefits of Acupuncture

The benefits of acupuncture are often cited anecdotally and have also been studied in clinical research. These are a few of many:

Pain Relief

Acupuncture is commonly used to alleviate various types of pain, such as chronic pain, migraines, lower back pain, and osteoarthritis. It is believed to stimulate the release of endorphins, which are natural pain-relieving chemicals in the body.

Stress Reduction

The process of acupuncture can trigger the release of neurotransmitters that help regulate mood and reduce stress and anxiety

Improved Sleep

Acupuncture might help improve sleep quality by promoting relaxation and reducing insomnia symptoms.

Headache and Migraine Relief

Acupuncture has been studied for its potential to reduce the frequency and severity of headaches and migraines.

Tim was very knowledgeable and took the time to really get to know what was going on with my injuries. Tim knew what was up with my shoulder and worked very hard to produce the results I was hoping for when I made my massage therapy appointment. I will definitely be coming back!
