how acupuncture works for Arthritis

Acupuncture treatment can greatly assist in easing arthritis discomfort. Acupuncture helps to treat arthritis by relieving swelling, increasing blood circulation to affected joints and increasing the release of pain-blocking endorphins.

made a big difference

“My name is Jo Holzbauer and I have come to Turning Point for several years now for acupuncture.

"The main reason I came is because I had a very serious fall and I had surgery on both of my knees. I had torn meniscuses in both of them and I have lots of arthritis in them. I just was looking for whatever was out there that could help me feel better and to hopefully heal quicker. Somebody told me I should try acupuncture. I asked a few people and lots of people recommended the Turning Point and specifically Tom.

"I’ve been coming at least once a week. Initially, I was coming twice a week. It’s made a big difference in my healing. I’m sure it’s made it quicker. I just love coming here. It’s a loving thing to do for yourself. That’s why I came.”
