Acupuncture has been practiced for thousands of years, but is becoming increasingly popular in western medicine. The traditional Chinese medical practice of acupuncture involves inserting thin needles into defined points along the energy meridians of the body. The “Westernized” approach to acupuncture is based on a thorough understanding of human anatomy to identify and release trigger points and local muscle tension. By using a combination of these approaches, Dr. Crape delivers an effective treatment to allow the body come back into balance. Acupuncture protocols can be designed to promote relaxation, balance hormones, increase energy, address insomnia, relieve pain and support injury recovery.
