What Is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture involves the insertion of small, hair-thin needles into specific points of the body called meridians. According to Chinese Medicine, energy flows through these meridians throughout your body, and the placement of needles can adjust this flow of energy and stimulate the body’s immune system and boost circulation.

Frequently Asked Questions
If you’ve never had acupuncture treatment before, you may have questions about the procedure and what you can expect. Endpoint Wellness is happy to answer these and any other questions you may have.
Does Acupuncture Really Work?
As a holistic treatment for whole-body wellness, acupuncture has been practiced for thousands of years. It is well-respected by the medical community, and treatments are often covered by insurance. Acupuncture is consistently more effective than the placebo effect in scientific trials, and it has even been used successfully in treating pain conditions in animals!
Will Acupuncture Treat My Condition?
The World Health Organization (W.H.O) recommends acupuncture as a treatment for many things, including respiratory diseases, dental pain, orthopedic disorders, neurologic disorders and gastrointestinal disorders. Acupuncture is generally very good at managing the symptoms of chronic and inflammatory conditions. It can improve the immune system and reduce systemic inflammation.
Is Acupuncture Safe?
When performed correctly by a certified Doctor of Oriental Medicine, acupuncture is generally very safe and effective. Unlike pharmaceuticals, it does not have side effects and can be safely used by pregnant women, lactating mothers, patients with compromised immune systems, and others who may not be able to or wish to receive other treatments. When performed with single-use, sterile needles, there is little to no risk of infection or complication from acupuncture treatment.
Does It Hurt?
The needles used in acupuncture are very thin, about the width of a hair. There is little to no discomfort associated with their insertion. During treatment, you may experience a feeling of achiness or pressure spreading through the body; this is a natural effect of the qi manipulation and most patients find it to be relaxing and deeply satisfying.
