Acupuncture was developed in China thousands of years ago. It’s the practice of penetrating a needle through specific points on your skin in order to alleviate pain, treat nausea, decrease stress, and help with a variety of other symptoms. Acupuncture balances the nervous system and increases circulation making it easier for the body to heal itself without the use of medication.
Acupuncture works by stimulating points along the body. When thin, sterilized needles are inserted into these acupuncture points, they help balance out the body to restore health. The points chosen coincide with major nerve centers. The needles stimulate the nerves, causing them to release feel-good chemicals known as endorphins.

Acupuncture is a form of traditional Chinese medicine used to treat and alleviate pain caused by muscle strain and joint issues. Acupuncture was first practiced in China starting around 2000 BC, but its origins are unclear.
Acupuncture works by visiting a health care provider who will insert extremely thin, sterile needles into specific points along the body’s energy pathways (called meridians). The treatment is continued for 10-45 minutes.
When the needles are inserted and pressure is applied, it is stimulating the production of chemicals such as serotonin and dopamine that modify nerve impulses. These chemicals help relieve pain signals as well as stimulate natural healing in the body. There is evidence backing the claim that acupuncture has effects on psychological wellbeing as well as physical conditions.
People in pain often have low levels of endorphins and a release of those endorphins can suppress the sensation of pain. The points are also located near trigger points, spots on the body where pain radiates away from the center when pressed. Acupuncture may ease the stress on trigger points thereby lessening pain in that area. Here’s the nice thing, though: NUCCA is so unique in that there is no guesswork. After the first adjustment, and ONLY for the next 1-2 visits, a follow-up x-ray is used to ensure that the NUCCA adjustments were successful. We use x-rays to ensure that we’re actually making a difference in your life. We have the proven capability to determine if the treatments are working for you.
