Acupuncture uses very fine needles inserted in key locations known as acupuncture points. These are located on "meridians" or energy channels which surround the body. Modern research has shown that acupuncture has a general beneficial effect on health. Many people feel better in general and sleep better following treatment. In her holistic care, Anne uses Acupuncture to help with a wide range of common dental conditions, many of them which can be difficult to treat conventionally.
Acupuncture is commonly used to treat jaw pain, clicking and locking. These conditions often occur with chronic headaches and migraine. Other conditions that respond well include rhinitis and sinusitis, prominent gag reflex, dental anxiety and post op pain.
There is also an Acupuncture meridian relationship connecting your teeth with all your body organs and systems, showing yet again the benefit in treating you holistically.
