Many people are hesitant when it comes to acupuncture, but it is an incredibly safe, painless and effective way to treat pain and improve overall health. Acupuncture is a holistic treatment method that originated in China over a thousand years ago and has been proven in clinical trials to treat and improve a number of medical conditions such as lower back pain, headaches, neck pain, depression, stress and anxiety.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has recognized acupuncture as a very effective method of treatment for neurological conditions and pain relief.
