Acupuncture in San Luis Obispo

acupuncture San Luis ObispoOur mission is to provide expert service and care based on the holistic principles of traditional Chinese medicine. Acupuncture is a procedure that penetrates the skin with fine needles to stimulate certain points on the body. Widely used for thousands of years, Acupuncture has proven itself over time to be extremely effective for certain health issues.  It’s traditional application is not just to improve symptoms but to restore overall good health and balance to an individual.

It Is Not In Your Head

A recent study at the University College London provides a rational basis that acupuncture effects are not the same as the placebo effect.  This new research showed a region of the brain involved in pain response, the ipsilateral insular was activated during real acupuncture and not during fake needling.

How It Works

We know acupuncture has multiple specific effects on human physiology and blood chemistry. Inserted needles result in local and systemic changes. The brain centers responsible for modulating pain and mood are regulated. Localized concentrations of the bodies endogenous pain relieving compounds are multiplied. Damaged nerves return to normal levels of intensity and duration when sending signals.

Are The Needles Sterile?

Absolutely! The needles are sterile and disposed of after each use. The needles are about the size of a human hair or 1/12 the size of a typical hospital needle. They are extremely fine and slip easily thru the outer dermal layers without causing pain.
