acupunctureAcupuncture originated in China about 3,000 years ago. Despite modernization and attempts to eradicate its use, the practice of acupuncture continues for one simple reason — it works.

Acupuncture works by redistributing energy or Qi among the meridians and the organs they pass through. Illness results when there is a blockage in a meridian and Qi cannot flow freely. The acupuncturist is trained to recognize hundreds of precise points at which blockages can occur.

By influencing the Qi at these points, the practitioner encourages the body to restore balance and equilibrium. Acupuncture can be effective in treating the following conditions:

  • addictions
  • digestive concerns
  • gynecological problems
  • immune system disorders
  • pain
  • respiratory problems
  • stress
  • anxiety
  • emotional issues

Super-fine sterile needles are inserted into the skin at some of the 300 points on the body. Each point has a specific effect on the body and the licensed acupuncturist combines these points to tailor the treatment to the needs of the individual in order to promote healing.
