ACUPUNCTURE

Acupuncture is the practice of penetrating the skin with thin, solid, metallic needles which are then activated through gentle and specific movements of the practitioner's hands or with electrical stimulation to improve the flow of Qi, thereby improving health.

Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese medicine used to alleviate pain and promote overall health. Acupuncture uses needles placed along invisible meridians that run throughout the body. Today, acupuncturists also use lasers, magnets and electric pulses in addition to needles. Each meridian point has a specific meaning and can unblock and repair meridians and channels with vital energy or chi. Through the stimulation of the meridians, an acupuncturist is able to restore balance and ergo health to the patient.

Acupuncture is used to treat a wide range of health problems, such as:

  • Persistent lower back pain

  • Chronic tension­-type headaches and migraines

  • Neck pain

  • Joint pain

  • Postoperative pain

  • Allergies

  • Depression and anxiety

  • Insomnia
