WHAT IS ACUPUNCTURE?

Acupuncture is the insertion of ultra-thin needles at various acupuncture points on the body to help regulate the flow of energy (Qi) and blood. Acupuncture activates the body's own healing system to help the body restore its balance. When the body's systems are balanced and the flow of Qi and blood is smooth, pain and discomforts may be minimized or eliminated and health is maintained. A healthy body leads to an overall mental and emotional well-being.


"When there is stagnation in the body, there will be pain and illness.  When there is no pain or illness, the body is free of stagnation." - a Traditional Chinese Medicine proverb
