The treatment of acupuncture is one of the oldest and most common complementary medicine treatments in the world.
As part of Traditional Chinese Medicine, it is most effective when used along with other TCM modalities like cupping, dry needling and herbal medicine.
David practices acupuncture by using Japanese needles of the highest quality.
Japanese needles are smaller and sharper than Chinese acupuncture needles. It is because of this that many patients have less pain from gentler, more superficial needling.
Herbs are often added to acupuncture as a supplemental treatment, diet and lifestyle suggestions are also common.
Performing exercises such as Tai Chi or Qigong may also be recommended.
Benefits of Acupuncture
- Decreases pain intensity

Many potential patients are afraid of needles and reject even receiving acupuncture treatment.
David has lasers available for children and needle shy patients.
