Acupuncture

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a treatment based on the Chinese theory that an essential energy called Qi (pronounced Chee) moves through the body along channels or "meridians" . Painful afflictions and illnesses result when Qi is out of balance or blocked. Stimulation of specific points in the meridian can correct this energy flow to restore or optimize health.

Stimulation of these acupuncture points can be achieved by inserting needles into the skin at precise points (called "needle acupuncture"). These points can also be stimulated by a gentle electrical current (called "electrical acupuncture") or deep massage of the points (called "acupressure").

SERVICES AVAILABLE
