Have a question about our acupuncture?
That's the first question most people ask, so let's get it out of the way. In short, the needles feel like a pinch. The needles are only as thick as a single human hair. Some patients feel the pinch and a “releasing” sensation as the blocked "qi energy" is freed.
Acupuncture has been used to treat everything from back pain and stiffness to asthma. I specialize in chronic low back pain, stress related injury to body, mind, or spirit, and the many aspects of long-haul Lyme disease.
Acupuncture has multiple mechanism of action. One of those mechanisms is the regulation of the nervous system when it is activated by mental and physical stress. Acupuncture also helps calm the brain down by rebalancing the connection between mind and body.
Please reach out and schedule a call and I'll do my best to answer it.

"At the beginning of each appointment, Mackay takes the time to talk with me about what is going on in my life and how I am feeling. My acupuncture sessions have a positive impact on my health and overall well-being."

Benefits of Acupuncture
Back pain is the most common complaint adults have. According to the CDC 25% of Americans had back pain in the last three months. Acupuncture can help.
It is believed that the needles stimulate the release of natural pain-relieving chemicals in the body, such as endorphins and enkephalins.
Stimulates the production of neurotransmitters like serotonin and dopamine, which can promote feelings of calm and relaxation.
It is believed that acupuncture can help regulate the body's circadian rhythm, which controls the sleep-wake cycle.
