Acupuncture is one of the most well-known components of Chinese medicine and while still new to the Western world, it has been practiced in China for more than 2,500 years.
Fine, sterile needles are carefully inserted along the body’s meridians which are the pathways through which life energy or Qi (say “chee”) flows to nourish organs, muscles and other tissue. Qi soothes physical and emotional pain, protects from illness and energizes the body, but stress, trauma and poor health habits can disrupt that flow. Acupuncture restores the free-flowing Qi to promote healing.
Treatment with acupuncture is safe and painless. For many chronic ailments as well as for accidental injury, acupuncture therapy is effective in relieving current symptoms and preventing further debility. Have questions? Ask us how acupuncture can alleviate your pain.
