Acupuncture is a form of medicine from East Asia that dates back over 3000 years. This comprehensive philosophy on medicine understands pain and disease are signs that the normal flow of Qi (energy/vitality) has been blocked.
Using very small, hair-thin needles inserted into various points on the body, acupuncture helps to re-balance and heal the body by smoothing and revitalizing the flow of Qi.
Acupuncture has been used by doctors throughout Asia to prevent and treat ailments of all kinds. Today acupuncture is used around the world and is endorsed as a viable medical treatment option by both the US National Institute of Health and the World Health Organization.
