Acupuncture is based on a single premise: we experience symptoms because energy is not moving freely through our body. Translated to modern western terms, acupuncture treatment causes your body to release hormones that regulate its various systems and promote healing.
Using needles as thin as the hair on your head, acupuncture is relatively painless and totally safe. Acupuncture is very effective in the treatment of a wide range of symptoms including joint or muscle pain, headaches, allergies, digestive complaints, stress and many other health issues.
Doctors of Chiropractic focus on the nerve system,(the brain and spinal cord) which manages the body's vast chemical interactions to ensure proper function. The brain sends messages through the spinal cord across a huge network of spinal nerves to deliver information to every cell, organ and system of the body.
The art of chiropractic lies within the "adjustment"; the correction of the spinal and/or extremity misalignments; to remove interference to the spinal cord and the nerves that exit between the bones of the spine.
