Add Acupuncture to Your Health Regimen

Through the insertion and stimulation of very thin needles, acupuncture activates the self-healing mechanisms of the body, encouraging it to return to a natural state of balance and equilibrium, and thus to optimal health. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, a vital energy called “qi” flows throughout the body via a system of channels or meridians. Through acupuncture, specific points around the body are selected to open and regulate the appropriate meridians, thus restoring the natural health and function of the body.
