Have you ever considered getting Acupuncture?  Maybe someone recommended the treatment to you for a specific problem and you weren’t sure what Acupuncture was and how it could help.

Acupuncture is a technique that involves placing very fine needles into specific points on the body to achieve a certain therapeutic effect. In total, there are 361 standard acupuncture points on the body from head to toe which are all located on meridians, and there are over 200 additional points on the ear alone. Each meridian corresponds with a major organ system and is the pathway of qi flow in that part of the body.

How can tiny needles have an effect on my health?  By placing acupuncture needles into points on the meridians, you can regulate the flow of qi which improves the flow of oxygen, nutrients, and blood to particular areas of the body to create a specific healing effect. Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture help to relieve imbalances in the body, which, in turn, stimulates your body’s innate ability to heal itself.  It is gentle and safe and can be used to treat a wide range of conditions from stress, to pain, to infertility. Acupuncture has been in use for several thousand years and has proven effectiveness in many modern studies for hundreds of conditions.
