Orthopaedic Acupuncture

Orthopaedic Acupuncture by Dr. Todd Peters

Acupuncture is the practice of inserting thin needles at specific points in the skin to promote healing naturally, relieve pain and diseases. It comes from ancient Chinese medicine and has been practice for thousands of years. Needle points are inserted into stratgic popints on the body helping stimulate the nervous system. This stimulation releases chemicals into the muscles, spinal cord and brain. These chemicals also trigger other chemicals and hormones to be released influencing the body’s regulation system and promoting overall well-being.
