Acupuncture is the use of extremely thin steralized needles into specific areas of the body with the intent of changing the metabolism of the patient. Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years as a safe and effective method of treating illness, healing injuries and preventing disease. Acupuncture is not painful although some sensation must be felt to induce a change. Often the sensation of pressure or warmth is often expereinced and described as pleasant. Many patients find acupuncture so plesant that they fall asleep during treatments to wake up feeling euphoric and relaxed. If you would like more information regarding specific treatments or conditions please call us at (631)629-5433 and we would be happy to help.
"Before going to Point of Life Acupuncture I was very hesitant about trying acupuncture. I wondered how this voodoo medicine was going to work or if it even would work. The staff at Point of Life Acupuncture took their time to explain to me how East Asian Medicine affects the body and why acupuncture is effective. We all know words are words and a picture is worth a thousand words. Wellthere aren’t enough words to tell you how great of an experience it was. Pain? There was none, in fact I fell asleep, when I woke up I got a massage and stretched out. When I got up, my pains were gone and haven’t come back! Now I go for more than just pain relief. Acupuncture and East Asian Medicine are away of life for me now. Thanks Team!" - G.M. – Police Officer – 5 Star!
