Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a form of Chinese Medicine that involves the insertion of hair-thin single use needles into specific points on the body. These acupuncture points are found along different pathways, or “meridians” on the body. The practitioner gently inserts needles along these points, stimulating  and accessing the patient’s “qi” or energy. When the body is in pain or out of balance, due to stress, physical or emotional trauma, and/or  injury, the smooth flow of energy is believed to be blocked. Acupuncture aims to clear these obstructions in the body by restoring the smooth flow of qi. It is believed that once a patient’s smooth flow of qi is restored, their body becomes healthy. Heat, manipulation or  electrical stimulation may also be added to an acupuncture treatment to enhance the effectiveness of the needles.
