Acupuncture is a branch of Traditional Chinese Medicine which has been practiced in the east for thousands of years. Acupuncture is a scientifically proven technique of re-balancing and healing the bodys’ energy (Qi) using the insertion of needles into acupuncture points along meridians ( energy channels). The stimulation of specific acupuncture points can create a variety of physiologic responses in the body such as improving circulation, release of neurochemicals to enhance sense of well being and decrease pain, relieve muscle spasms, decrease inflammation and support immunesystem balance.
Spinal Manipulation Therapy
The science of spinal manipulation therapy (chiropractic) involves the relationship between the spinal column and the nervous system and the crucial role this relationship has in the maintenance of overall health. The vertebrae of the spinal column assist in supporting the head and provide attachment points for the muscles responsible for locomotion. Nerve impulses travel from the brain down the spinal cord to all parts of the body as well as bring nerve impulses from the body back to the brain. The nervous system is responsible for initiating and coordinating movement and for integrating all the physiologic activities of the body.

Laser therapy uses light to favor and accelerate the body’s natural healing processes. The laser beam is moved over the skin so that the light energy (photons) penetrates the tissue where it interacts with various molecules (chromophores) that cause different biological effects. It produces a photochemical, photothermal and photomechanical effect. This is one of the most affordable, practical and popular therapies we use in our Truckee office for our North Lake Tahoe/Reno patients.
