Acupuncture is a healing art of ancient Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) which dates back over 3000 years. It uses very fine, sterile needles to regulate and balance Qi or Energy that flows through the complex system of invisible channels called meridians.
There are more than 365 acupuncture points on the human body, along these meridians. These are the points where Qi flows closest to the skin and is most easily accessed, where it can be regulated, balanced and tonified with the use of the acupuncture needle.
Most people seek out Acupuncture after being disappointed with the results of medications and other treatments. Even the strongest modern drugs usually can only mask symptoms, not cause healing. True healing is only possible when your body heals itself. That’s what makes Acupuncture so powerful. It works by assisting your body’s self-healing mechanisms and correcting biochemical imbalances.
