Acupuncture is an ancient technique that effectively treats many conditions and helps restore balance to the entire body. It is based on the theory that the body contains meridians, or channels through which our life energy (Qi) flows. Blockages caused by stress, lifestyle, medications or injuries, disrupt the natural flow of Qi and create pain and illness. Many reputable medical studies now prove what practitioners have known for centuries; that Acupuncture does have a measurable and beneficial effect on the body. Acupuncture is performed using single-use disposable needles the width of a human hair. It is painless, safe, and effective.
