Acupuncture originated over 2,500 years ago in China and is now used all over the world. Acupuncture concentrates on the electrical energy in the nervous system and organs. With Acupuncture, the placement of the fine hair-thin needles into specific points of the body can act like antennas and reprogram the body to a healthier state. Acupuncture has rapidly become an accepted treatment in alternative care in America, with over 35 states, including Virginia, regulating acupuncture as health care professionals. Some insurance companies cover acupuncture treatment. Call your insurance provider to see what coverage you may have as each plan varies.
