Acupuncture in Brentwood and Franklin, TN

Acupuncture is one of the oldest healing practices in the world and is a great way to relieve ailments and disorders of all types such as migraines, tennis elbow, and even the common cold! Acupuncture was developed more than 2000 years ago and is based on traditional Chinese medicine. By strategically placing needles on certain points of the body to you can do wonders for your body and overall health.

Traditional Chinese medicine describes acupuncture as a way to balance the flow of energy in your body. This energy, known as qi, flows through pathways in your body, called meridians. Acupuncture will help clear these pathways and restores the flow of energy to the proper balance.

This proven wellness technique has been adopted by many Western practitioners as it is a natural way to stimulate the nerves and muscles in the body. By stimulating the nerves and muscles one can experience the benefits of increased blood flow and boost the body's natural healing functions.

While acupuncture is most often used to relieve pain in the body caused by everyday wear and tear, it has also been proven to reduce pain and nausea resulting from surgery, chemotherapy, and even dental procedures.
