Backworks' licensed acupuncturist stimulates acupuncture points with hair-thin filiform needles. In each 60-minute session, Dr. York aims to relieve the aches of elbows weary of tennis and wrists sore from segway polo, stimulating the flow of the body's vital energy, or chi. As he works to relieve migraines or release stress, the acupuncturist takes care to keep the treatment as pain-free as possible, only causing sensations reminiscent of tingling, pressure, or gentle embroidery. In addition to pain relief, acupuncture may benefit individuals with depression, anxiety, drug addiction, insomnia, infertility, and other symptoms.
