WHAT IS ACUPUNCTURE?
Acupuncture is one aspect of Eastern Medicine which controls pain and improves functioning by inserting thin needles through the skin at specific points on the body.
In Acupuncture improves the body’s functions and promotes the natural self-healing process by stimulating specific anatomic sites–commonly referred to as acupuncture points, or acupoints.
Acupuncture treats the human body as a whole that involves several “systems of
function” that are in some cases loosely associated with (but not identified on a one-to-one basis with) physical organs.
Thousands of years of clinical experience using more than 400 points on the body have shown the effectiveness of this healing modality.
In 1997, the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) documented and publicized acupuncture’s safety and efficacy for treating a wide range of conditions.

What Our Customers Are Saying
Don’t just take it from us, let our customers do the talking!
I have had migraines since I was a teenager. I’ve tried everything, medications, biofeedback, physical therapy, nothing helped long term, until I started seeing Dr. Todd for Accupuncture. I went from two
headaches a week to two headaches a month. And the relief started after
the third session. I can enjoy my life again!
I have had issues with my hip for over three years. My doctor always sent me to physical therapy and only ever got a little relief. That is until I started going to TREE OF LIFE. The massage I receive from DeAnn is amazing! I had been going for almost a year when my therapist suggested that I also see Todd for acupuncture. He was able to get down to the next level of muscle tissue. Between these two wonderful people I can say I feel the best I’ve felt in years!!! Highly recommend both of them. It has been the best treatment option for me!
I had severe low back pain and went for an infrared sauna treatment. While discussing my condition with the massage therapist, they recommended I try acupuncture with Dr. Todd. He had an opening so I opted in right after my sauna. Wonderful experience with a positive outcome.
Dr. Todd is a wonderful addition to the staff at Tree of Life and I highly recommend him!

Frequently Asked Questions
How does Acupuncture work?
Most commonly, inserting thin, sterile needles into the skin is used to stimulate acupoints. Pressure, heat, or electrical stimulation may also be used. Acupuncture therapy can stimulate function of the body’s natural healing response through various physiological systems. Modern research has demonstrated acupuncture’s effects on the nervous system, endocrine and immune systems, cardiovascular system, and digestive system. Whether they work through increasing circulation, stimulating nerves, or releasing endorphins, centuries of experience have shown how powerful acupuncture is for healing the body.
Does Acupuncture hurt?
Acupuncture needles are much thinner than what are used for shots and blood draws, about the thickness of a human hair. Because of this, the sensation of inserting the needles is mild and almost negligible once they are in. Normal reactions to needling include redness in the area, a sensation of heat/cold, feeling of heaviness, or an electric “Zinger”.
