What is acupuncture

Acupuncture is a holistic health technique that stems from Traditional Chinese Medicine practices in which trained practitioners, such as Dr. Steve stimulate specific points on the body by inserting thin sterile single use needles into the skin. ... Surprisingly, although needles are used in acupuncture, treatments are relatively pain-free.

Acupuncture is increasingly recognized by Western medicine as an effective alternative or adjunct to conventional treatments for stroke rehabilitation, headache, menstrual cramps, joint conditions, low back pain, and asthma as well as for the side effects of chemotherapy and nausea related to pregnancy.

Dry needling, also known as myofascial trigger point dry needling, is the use of either solid filiform needles (also referred to as acupuncture needles) for therapy of muscle pain, including pain related to myofascial pain syndrome, fibromyalgia, acute and chronic sprains and muscle tightness. 

Dr. Steve has both the training and clinical experience for an excellent outcome.
