Acupuncture is a treatment that uses very thin steel needles inserted into the skin to stimulate specific points in the body. The goal is to relieve a health condition or symptom, such as pain. The practice comes from traditional Chinese medicine. Scientific studies have confirmed its effectiveness for some conditions.
Chinese medicine calls the energy that flows through the body qi. Chinese medicine practitioners believe qi disruptions create imbalances in the body’s energy that lead to illness. Some forms of acupuncture aim to rebalance qi with needles that touch acupuncture points (acupoints) throughout the body.
There are hundreds of acupoints in the body along 14 major meridians, also called energy-carrying channels.
The needles stimulate the body’s existing systems to:
React to an illness or symptom.
Rebalance the body.
Release natural chemicals, such as endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers, and neurotransmitters, chemicals that control nerve impulses.
You may feel a small prick with each needle. It’s less painful than the feeling when you get a vaccine or blood draw. Acupuncture needles are much thinner than medical needles, and they are solid, not hollow. The needles may cause some muscle sensations, such as dull ache or tingling. Your practitioner will ask you to report when you feel a deep heaviness or numbness. Those sensations usually mean the treatment is working.

Her acupuncture treatments are always improving my quality of life, sometimes by producing magical results. Also Shannon is an awesome acupuncturist that has helped me a lot. I highly recommend Relief Acupuncture!

Shannon was wonderful. I noticed limited range of motion in my shoulder during my workouts from carrying a heavy purse. Shannon cured my shoulder injury in only a few treatments. She was very gentle especially since I don’t like needles. My shoulder is good as new! Highly recommend.

Dr.Faith has a beautiful soul.However, you're there for relief and wellness so let me tell you whoaaaa that is what you'll one thousand percent get and more. The rooms and beds are so comfortable. The background music is calm and peaceful. Then Dr.Faith comes in with a genuine and authentic approach to healing you as a unique individual. And falling asleep isn't really falling asleep as much as getting to a depth unimaginable in relaxation. I could have a wonderful sleepover weekend there! Genuinely amazing so do this for yourself as you deserve the best healers. Alex, an acupuncturist, is phenomenal at pain relief. Shannon is very wonderful too.I really can't imagine that Dr.Faith has anyone practicing with her that isn't the best at healing. Wishing you peace, hope and faith in your quest for superior wellness.
