Acupuncture in Phoenix

Traditional Chinese medicine says that health is the result of the harmonious balance of the extremes of ‘yin’ and ‘yang’ of the life force known as ‘qi’. An illness is said to be the consequence of the imbalance of these forces. Qi flows through various pathways or meridians in our body. These pathways and energy flows can be accessed through 350 acupuncture points.

Inserting needles into these meridian points in the right combination brings the energy flow back into its proper balance. Scientifically, acupuncture points are viewed as places where the nerves, muscles and connective tissues are available to stimulation. This increases the flow of blood while triggering your body’s painkillers.

Benefits of Acupuncture

Once your condition is assessed, our expert acupuncturist at Skin Care of Arizona inserts one or more thin and sterile needles. With each needle, you may feel a bit of tingling or stinging sensation. Acupuncture is a painless procedure and is kept in place for 5 to 30 minutes.
