General Well-Being

On occasion, we get a call from someone who wants to come in for an appointment because they’re curious to learn what acupuncture is about, but they are generally in good health. One of our areas of focus is in preventative care, or wellness maintenance. Acupuncture supports General Well-being and overall health by maintaining positive circulation and sustaining healthy systems.

The body’s immune system is constantly working to fight off illness, and the skeletal system and soft tissues to avoid injury.

Acupuncture aids in restful sleep, good digestion, reducing stress, improving circulation, maintaining reproductive health, and much more.
