Episode Info: What is acupuncture and how does it work? Most of us have a vague idea of the ancient Chinese practice involving thin needles stuck in your skin all over your body. Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years to treat pain, depression, fertility, and to promote general health and wellness. But do you understand how it works? What are those needles actually doing? Guest Salena Hanrahan is a licensed acupuncturist and she explains the basics of acupuncture and how to find someone credible to work with you on this intense mind/body connection. She also talks about how acupuncture is becoming more popular here in the west, and how it's often prescribed by doctors as part of an overall treatment plan. Get full show notes here. This is part of the Mind/Body series. Other episodes include: Pilates with Kerri Campbell ** Follow SPITR on Facebook Follow SPITR on Instagram  Read more »
