Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine

acupunctureAcupuncture is an effective & reliable form of preventive healthcare. It is recognized by the WHO - World Health Organization as a safe & painless way to treat a wide variety of medical conditions. Traditional Chinese medicine practitioners believe the human body has more than 2,000 acupuncture points connected by pathways or meridians. These pathways create an energy flow (Qi, pronounced "chee") through the body that is responsible for overall health. Disruption of the energy flow can cause disease. By applying acupuncture to certain points, it is thought to improve the flow of Qi, thereby improving health.

Acupuncture can quickly shift you out of fight-or-flight mode and into the parasympathetic rest-and-relax mode. It sends a signal to your brain that you are safe and it can relax. This in turn allows your body to heal from stress, pain, and inflammation.



How is Acupuncture done?

A registered acupuncturist will insert sterile disposable fine needles at specific points on the body activating the "de qi" to treat your specific health concern. Acupuncture can improve the overall function and well-being of your body making it a valuable investment in your health.
