Benefits of Acupuncture

Acupuncture is part of the continuum of holistic chiropractic care offered by our chiropractor in Shoreview. An ancient treatment method that can be traced back over more than two millennia, with roots in traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture works well as a complement to other chiropractic methods. Acupuncture, like natural chiropractic treatment, can provide relief from pain and stress without the need for drugs. Acupuncture stimulates meridian points or energy pathways within the body to bring symptom relief and balance the body's vital energy. These results are achieved through the use of precisely placed, hair-thin needles and vibration techniques.
