ACUPUNCTURE IS THE PAINLESS PLACEMENT OF VERY FINE NEEDLES INTO SPECIFIC POINTS OF THE BODY THAT PROMOTE HEALING AND IMPROVE FUNCTION.

The needles used are hair-thin, making the experience of having acupuncture in no way like having an injection. The needles are designed to not harm the skin. Sometimes electric stimulation or heat may be used to stimulate the needles. By doing this, the pain response is diminished, and muscles are relaxed, allowing the body to return to normal function.

Acupuncture releases endorphins and other neurotransmitters into circulation. Endorphins are natural pain killers which are very effective on things such as back pain, arthritis, and other musculoskeletal conditions. They also help reduce emotions like anxiety, stress and depression. Dr. Schreiber’s extensive acupuncture training includes instruction by the late Dr. Richard Yennie, the individual responsible for bringing acupuncture to the United States. He may combine traditional acupuncture with modern approaches. He is also trained in several “microsystems”, including ear, hand and scalp.
