Acupuncture is a medicine used to relieve pain, and to treat many physical, mental, and emotional conditions by pricking the skin or tissues with needles. Despite being thousands of years old, scientists are only just beginning to understand exactly how acupuncture works. What we do know is that acupuncture effects the central nervous system and changes they way pain is processed.

Acupuncture can also reduce the amount of prescription drugs you may need to take or eliminate side effects of those you simply have to take on a regular basis.
