Acupuncture


Acupuncture is an ancient system of healing dating back thousands of years. The basis of this intricate and multi-layered medicine is a philosophy that describes the universe and the body in terms of opposing forces; yin and yang. Yin and Yang are not static, they constantly change and move, thus the goal is to create and maintain balance, also known as homeostasis. The flow of energies within the body can become blocked, sluggish, or sometimes move excessively. Acupuncture evokes the natural healing response throughout multiple physiological systems, by moving vital life force, referred to as Qi.

Therapeutic affect is achieved by inserting hair thin needles into specific points along meridians on the body. Through these meridians Qi flows. There are over 360 specifically placed points on these meridians used to create change. Single use disposable sterile needles are always used. On certain occasions electrical stimulation, moxa, massage, or infrared heat therapy may be incorporated into the treatment.
