                Acupuncture


Acupuncture is an important component of TCM used in the prevention and treatment of disease. Developed in China over 2,500 years ago, it uses the principle that there is the pattern of Qi through the body, which was essential for good health. There are 14 major Qi pathways, which are connected with specific internal organs/ systems. By inserting fine needles (only about three times the thickness of a human hair and much finer than the hypodermic needles) at specific points within the Qi pathways, the energy is rebalanced. The needles cause only minor sensation, like a small prick, as the needle is inserted. Then, your practitioner stimulates the needle, causing you to feel more sensation. Your practitioner will provide personal care during the treatment to be sure the procedure is comfortable for you.
