Acupuncture is the gentle insertion of very fine needles to specific points on the body. This process stimulates movement of energy within the body, allowing your body’s natural healing process to take place.
Acupuncture is an energetic form of medicine that is over 5000 years old. Through the manipulation of very fine needles, acupuncture is a safe and effective way to maintain and restore optimal health. Acupuncture points are the specific points on the meridians (review the TCM section for more information on meridians) where the Qi is both concentrated and accessible. Acupuncture engages the Qi by inserting needles at these specific points, the goal being to restore the proper flow of Qi. As the body regains its natural balance, well-being returns.
