What is acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a safe, effective and painless method of restoring the body’s natural healing process that originated in China over 2,000 years ago.
Acupuncture involves the insertion of sterile, single-use, disposable needles into specific points on the body, chosen for their particular effect. In Western terms, the insertion of needles stimulates the nervous system, which in turn causes increased circulation, decreased inflammation, pain relief and immune system stimulation. The Eastern explanation for how acupuncture works relates to the Chinese Medical Theory that energy (called qi) flows through the body and can become blocked or out of balance, causing a variety of physical symptoms. Acupuncture can help correct the flow of qi and put your body back into balance.
