We often use acupuncture as an adjunct therapy to our comprehensive menu of chiropractic and physical therapy services. The proof of acupuncture’s effectiveness is in its longevity. The earliest written record of acupuncture dates back to 200 BCE.
According to Chinese Medicine, energy in our bodies flows through channels called meridians. This energy called Qi, pronounced as “chee”, can get blocked and out of balance which can lead to illness. These blockages can be caused by external factors (such as cold or damp weather, physical trauma, etc.) or internal factors (such as stress, unhealthy diets, etc.). The very fine acupuncture needles placed on identified points assist to unblock the Qi and bring us back to balance. There is no western medical explanation for Qi. However, there is over 5,000 years of empirical evidence proving the effectiveness of acupuncture.
What can acupuncture treat?

What to expect during acupuncture therapy
Dr. Jimenez will use small, thin, sterile needles inserted into the skin to help stimulate energy, healing and balance.

Some symptoms are relieved after the first treatment!
