Acupuncture is a way of balancing the body. It uses thin needles placed at specific points in the body. Atlas Health Care Center is trained to know where to locate these points for the related condition or symptom. When these specific points are stimulated, your body’s function improves and begins a self-healing process. An acupuncture session will typically last 20 minutes. Atlas Health Care Center will develop a treatment plan based on your specific needs. The number of treatments will vary among each individual or condition. The best acupuncture is painless despite popular belief. Many patients even report being more relaxed after receiving treatment. Acupuncture is a safe, alternative treatment for pain. It has fewer side effects than medications you may be taking to relieve your pain.
