Acupuncture Services Provided by Plainfield Chiropractic in Plainfield, IL

Acupuncture is a non-invasive therapy used to reduce pain and promote natural healing. Therapy involves inserting fine needles through tissue into predetermined points. Acupuncture strengthens weak muscles and loosens tight muscles to provide relief.

Acupuncture is the insertion of fine needles into the body at specific points shown as effective in the treatment of specific health problems. These points have been mapped by the Chinese for more than 2,000 years. Recently, electromagnetic research has confirmed their locations.

Acupuncture is a licensed and regulated healthcare profession in about half of the United States. Patients should ask their practitioner if their state requires a license to practice. In states that do not require licensing, patients should ask their practitioner if they are certified by the National Commission for the Certification of Acupuncturists.
