Over the past 5,000 years acupuncture has evolved into a complete medical system that can diagnose, treat and prevent illness. The oldest medical textbook in the world, which is over 4,700 years old, describes acupuncture and the theory behind it. acupunctureAcupuncture is a means of adjusting the body’s bio-electrical energy (Chi) through the insertion of fine, disposable, sterilized needles into carefully selected acupuncture points along the energy meridians of the body. The needles are inserted into the points and are then manipulated with gentle pumping action, by twirling or leaving in place for a few minutes. These motions stimulate the flow of Chi and Blood, so the Chi and Blood can be dispersed and regulated. Needling these specific acupuncture points restores the proper balance and flow of Chi, while improving the overall function of your body and enhancing its recuperative power and immunity. Acupuncture treatment works with the natural vital energy inherent within all living things to promote the body’s ability to heal itself. We believe choosing the most safe, effective and drug-free acupuncture treatment, you are taking a great step towards achieving a more balanced, harmonized and healthy lifestyle.
