Originating from China, acupuncture is a 10,000-year-old practice that stimulates the body to heal itself by promoting health, alleviating pain, and suffering. Acupuncturists operate with prevention in mind, correcting small energetic imbalances before they become major health issues.
Chinese medicine is based on the principles of body energy called “chi” which is understood to be the energy of life. The body energy flows freely in over 200 energy pathways in the human body.
Any congestion or imbalance of this flow can cause illness. Needles placed in strategic energy points work by re-establishing the balance, releasing obstruction of energy flow; thus opening the energy channels and alleviating the source of pain.
Acupuncture is widely used to treat a variety of conditions and disorders including:
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Shoulder pain
- Myofacial pain syndrome
- Poor circulation
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Nicotine Addiction
- Weight Control
