Why Use Acupuncture?
In the hands of a well trained practitioner like Chesapeake AIM founder Dr. Jinell Smithmyer, Acupuncture has many broader applications beyond pain.
For example, Acupuncture has been shown to improve digestion and sleep disorders, quell anxiety and depression, balance reproductive and hormone function, and regulate biomarkers related to autoimmune diseases – even if the problem has been chronic.
Initial Consultation Required
