For thousands of years, acupuncture has been a holistic therapy practiced in Japan. Acupuncture is believed to improve the flow of QI (oxygen and energy) to the body. In Western medicine, it is understood that the homeostatic imbalances in the body can be helped by acupuncture.
Acupuncture is increasing in popularity as a homeopathic alternative for pain management. In fact, The World Health Organization released new benchmarks to evaluate treatment outcomes and methods in 2021.
Regular acupuncture therapies can promote metabolic balance, improve neurotransmitter functioning, and flow of nutrients and oxygen through all vital systems in the body. Bloom MedSpa provides both cosmetic and therapeutic acupuncture treatments by certified clinicians

Following acupuncture therapy, patients are encouraged to relax for the rest of the day and hydrate with water. Engage in slow activities, or sleep. Most patients feel refreshed after a deep sleep after their acupuncture treatment.
