Not so with acupuncture. This treatment has been used for thousands of years to help people find relief from their ailments.

The primary side effects from acupuncture are minor soreness and bruising. Compared to the side effects that come with many prescription drugs, these short-lasting inconveniences don’t bother most people at all. 

Even with minimal side effects, you might be worried about the treatment itself. But the needles we use are so fine that you shouldn’t feel any discomfort during your treatment. And many patients report feeling markedly better immediately after their acupuncture treatment. 

Acupuncture delivers a myriad of benefits without a prescription or unwanted side effects. If you’d like to learn more or find out if acupuncture is right for you, don’t hesitate to call us at 203-293-0549 or request an appointment online today.
