What is Acupuncture and How Does It Work?

With origins in China around 3,500 years ago, acupuncture is one of the most commonly used systems of healing in the world. At Olanani AcuOasis, we offer acupuncture for pain relief, stress relief, digestive health, sleep, respiratory health, autoimmune disorders, women’s health and men’s health, and much more.

To administer acupuncture, we use fine, sterile, single-use needles to stimulate points on the body located on pathways called meridians.Like rivers, these meridians connect points on the surface of the body to organ systems deeper found deeper within. Activating these points induces a healing response by the body, promoting relaxation, correcting imbalances, improving the body's functions, and increasing well-being.

It is estimated that each year in America, over 14 million people have used acupuncture. More studies are finding scientific basis for the results. It is now offered at many major hospitals. The World Health Organization, the National Institutes of Health and other medical institutions recognize acupuncture as a safe and successful treatment for a wide variety of health disorders (click the link below).
