Why try Acupuncture in Lenexa?

01

Natural healing

The stimulation of acupuncture points is believed to stimulate the central nervous system. This floods the body with chemicals which induce your body's natural healing response.

02

Non-invasive and pain-free

Acupuncture requires the use of very thin, sterile, single use needles. We insert these needles 1/4 to 1/2 inch into the skin, which is shallow. Most patients report having absolutely no discomfort during treatment, and some may even find it relaxing. 

03

Holistic approach

While other pain management methods may simply mask one or two symptoms, acupuncture takes into account the entire body as a whole. Your provider may stimulate acupuncture points that are far away to your treatment areas. This is because we understand that the body is connected and the points we choose to stimulate can heal the body from the inside out.
