Acupuncture, one of the oldest healing practices known the world over, is an ancient form of Chinese medicines involving the insertion of very thin, sterile, stainless steel needles into specific points of the body.
According to traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture is based on the theory that an essential life energy, called qi, flows through the body along channels called meridians. Each meridian is connected to a specific internal organ. When the flow of qi is blocked or out of balance, illness or pain results. The stimulation of acupuncture points along the meridians releases the blockage and promotes the smooth flow of qi, restoring health.
Acupuncture can naturally reduce pain and help regulate organ systems that are not functioning optimally. It can help with stress and tension relief, increased energy levels, relief from bad habits and addictions, and more! There are multiple kinds of acupuncture methods that relate to the location in which the needles are being inserted. Traditionally, acupuncture is a whole body treatment, but you can get more specific treatments for areas of pain such as wrist and ankle, abdominal, scalp and more.
