Acupuncture

What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a safe and effective healing art backed by more than two thousand years of practice and research. By inserting very thin, sterile needles into the body at specific acupuncture points, your practitioner aims to rebalance the body’s Qi (Energy). Qi is made up of two balancing parts, Yin and Yang, and flows through the body in pathways called meridians. If the flow through the meridians is blocked, the body becomes unbalanced. This imbalance is believed to be the cause of illness. Acupuncture will activate the body’s Qi and correct this imbalance. It is a safe, painless, and effective means of treating a wide range of conditions.
