Acupuncture is a 3,000-year-old healing technique of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Acupuncture works by improving the body’s functions and promoting our body’s natural self-healing process. Acupuncture achieves this by stimulating specific anatomic sites with the insertion of fine, sterile needles into the skin.

Traditional Chinese Medicine is based on an ancient philosophy that describes the universe — and our body — in terms of two opposing forces: The Yin and Yang (rhymes with “thin and long”).

When Yin and Yang are in balance, the body is healthy and functioning well. In a balanced body, energy — called Qi (“chee”) — flows along specific pathways throughout the body, known as meridians. This healthy flow of energy keeps the Yin and Yang forces balanced. But if the flow of energy gets blocked, this disruption can lead to pain, reduced function or illness. Acupuncture helps release blocked Qi in the body and stimulates the body’s own natural healing response

The World Health organization has found that acupuncture has proven deeply beneficial for a wide range of illnesses and issues, including:
