Acupuncture

Acupuncture ServicesAcupuncture was developed over 2,500 years ago, and is used to treat a wide variety of conditions. It helps bring the body into a balanced state and helps achieve optimal internal functions. For these reasons, acupuncture can help almost anyone. Acupuncture is performed by inserting tiny needles through the skin on certain points or locations along energetic pathways. Different points are used to treat various bodily dysfunction or diseases, to modify or prevent pain perception, and to normalize the body’s physiological functions.

Acupuncture regulates qi (pronounced chee), or life force, that runs through the energetic pathways, or meridians of the body. Adequate qi gives us the energy we need to perform daily activities, it protects us from illness and pain, and keeps our emotions and spirit healthy. When qi is disrupted, it cannot nourish the mind, body, and spirit. As a result, disease can occur. Acupuncture manipulates qi so that it can freely flow to achieve optimal health. It is a safe, painless, and effective way to treat a wide range of physical and psycho-emotional problems.
