Program Overview

Acupuncture has been practiced for thousands of years. It continues to evolve and improve to this day. MRI studies have shown how quickly the stimulus from an acupuncture needle can travel to the brain. When it comes to pain relief, the effects can arrive almost instantaneously. Pursuing this fast response is what characterizes the Balance Method from traditional acupuncture. When correctly and strategically placed, the body’s response is immediate, within minutes or even seconds of treatment.
