Acupuncture is a form of treatment that involves inserting very thin needles through a person’s skin at specific points. Acupuncture seeks to release the flow of the body’s vital energy or “qi” by stimulating points along energy pathways. It is also believed that the needles cause the body to release endorphins, or your body’s natural painkillers, and may boost blood flow and change brain activity. Each acupuncture needle produces a tiny injury at the insertion site, and although it’s slight enough to cause little to no discomfort, it’s enough of a signal to let the body know it needs to respond. People often report feeling energized or relaxed after treatment. Dana says, "In my practice, I’m often using multiple modalities such as needles, electro acupuncture, cupping, moxibustion, percussor, trigger point release and point injection therapy along with Chinese Herbs and Chinese Medicine Dietary recommendations."
