Acupuncture is one of the oldest, most commonly used forms of medicine in the world. Originating in China more than 3,500 years ago, acupuncture is currently one of the most thoroughly researched, practiced, and respected forms of complementary medicine available anywhere.
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, your overall health is determined by the quality of the energy flow through pathways of your body called meridians. Think of these meridians as super highways of energy that can become congested with traffic, poor road conditions, and blockages, making passage difficult or impossible. Acupuncture, in very simple terms, is believed to clear these blockages in order to allow energy, greater health, and the feeling of emotional well-being to flow freely within the body.
Acupuncture involves the insertion of very fine, sterile, disposable needles into specific points on the body, to stimulate and improve energy flow and circulation. The treatments are not only virtually painless, but wonderfully relaxing. In fact, many of our patients fall asleep during their treatment!
