Acupuncture

Dating back to over 5000 years ago, Acupuncture is founded in traditional Chinese medicine and is based on the understanding of the function of the human body. The National Institutes of Health and World Health Organization now endorse the use of acupuncture for a wide array of conditions based on over 40 years of extensive research by Western medical researchers.

How Does Acupuncture Work?

The intent of acupuncture therapy is to promote and alleviate pain and suffering. Acupuncture treatments consist of inserting ultra-thin, sterile, disposable needles into the skin to balance the flow of energy called "Qi" (pronounced "chee"). By removing obstructions to the normal flow of energy that develop as a result of disease, acupuncture allows the body to heal itself. Since the needles are not being used to deliver medicine into the body, acupuncture needles are much thinner than needles used for traditional medicine. Along with relief of a condition, most people experience relaxation, increased vitality, and a sense of well-being from acupuncture treatments.
