Acupuncture is an energetic, powerful medical practice used for over 5000 years to effectively restore and maintain health and vitality.
Whether you are experiencing challenges with physical pain, dis-ease or emotional stress, Chinese medicine sees these as blockages of the flow of our vital energy (Qi) through the acupuncture channels (meridians) in our body. Understanding the principals of Yin & Yang, as well as the 5 Elements, your acupuncturist works to release blockages and stimulate your body’s innate ability to self- regulate and heal so that you can move on to be the best person you can.
Acupuncture is successful in treating: addictions . allergies . cardiovascular problems . digestive difficulties . headaches . pain . psycho-emotional discomfort . reproductive challenges . respiratory conditions . sleep difficulty . stress . and weight management, among others.
Our experience confirms that acute issues benefit from more frequent acupuncture treatments over a shorter period of time, while chronic issues benefit from less frequent acupuncture treatments over a longer period of time.
