What Is Acupuncture And How Does It Help:

Acupuncture activates specific points on the body which improve circulation, organ function and neural communication. These points lie on channels which run from your extremities and connect with your organs internally.

It is through these channels that we can influence the muscles and joints over which they run (helping with pain, tension and inflammation), as well as stimulating and regulating the function of the organs to which they connect (helping with internal conditions).

Fine needles are injected into areas of muscle used to resolve pain, reduce tension and restore overall balance to the body.

How Acupuncture Works

With over 2000 years of use, Chinese medicine describes acupuncture as a method that helps our bodies channels to successfully transport energy (qi) around and through the body. Qi is said to be influenced in specific ways at points which lie along these channels. When Qi flows freely the body will function well, when Qi becomes blackened, organ function is impaired and symptoms of illness can appear.

Acupuncture promotes the natural self-healing process through stimulating these specific anatomic sites – commonly referred to as points, or acupoints through the insertion of fine needles into the skin.

Frequency Of Treatments

It is recommended 1 to 2 sessions per week for 6 weeks
