Acupuncture is a safe, painless and effective treatment that incorporates the use of very fine, disposable, sterile needles that are inserted into specific points on pathways called meridians that flow throughout the body. Acupuncture works by regulating the flow of energy (called “qi”) through these meridians. It can produce a feeling of deep relaxation while it restores balance to the body.
Traditional Chinese Medicine
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a system of healing that originated about 4,000 years ago. Using acupuncture, herbal medicine, qi-gong, dietary and lifestyle guidance, TCM has had great success in returning the body to a state of balance, thus alleviating symptoms of disease and restoring good health. TCM is unique in its approach because it seeks to treat the cause of disease, not merely the symptoms.
