Acupuncture is a safe and effective therapy that originated more than 2000 years ago. Over time, this therapy has been refined and clinically studied, while extensive evidence–based research has proven its efficacy in the treatment of multiple conditions.
Acupuncture is used to encourage whole body healing, improve mood and energy, reduce or relieve pain and improve function of affected areas of the body. Physiologically, acupuncture boosts immune function, increases peripheral circulation, improves skin and blood flow, and regulates the autonomic nervous system, digestive system and reproductive system.
At the Insight Naturopathic Clinic, Dr. Melissa Lee ND uses hair–thin needles to insert at specific points in the body. These needles are specifically designed for a smooth painless insertion. During the treatment she gently stimulates each needle to trigger the body’s natural healing response.
Common conditions Dr. Lee treats at Insight Naturopathic Clinic with acupuncture include but are not limited to:
- Menstrual and PMS problems
- Sports injuries
