Lauren Corda Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a holistic medicine that encourages and enhances the body’s natural ability to heal itself. This is done by inserting sterilized, stainless-steel needles that are as fine as a human hair into specific points on the body.

Acupuncture is used to treat a wide variety of physical and emotional conditions including, but not limited to, sports injuries, arthritis, infertility, stress, depression and anxiety, Acupuncture is also used for pre- and post-surgical care, insomnia, fatigue, digestive disorders, allergies, auto immune disorders and much more.

Traditional Chinese Medicine views a person in which mind body and spirit are unified, each influencing and balancing the other. Illness arises when the cyclical flow of Qi becomes unbalanced or blocked. By promoting the free flow of Qi in the body, we can unblock and balance energy to maintain a healthy body, mind and spirit.
