Acupuncture

Marianjoy’s acupuncture program takes a holistic approach to treatment, which may include medication or physical therapy. Acupuncture is a method of encouraging the body’s flow of energy to promote natural healing and improve function. An acupuncture treatment is administered by applying tiny, sterile needles, with or without stimulation, at precise points on the body.
