Acupuncture is a safe, gentle, drug-free therapy for treating many health conditions by focusing on correcting imbalances of energy in the body.
From its inception in China more than 2,500 years ago, acupuncture has been used to prevent, diagnose and treat disease and improve general health. It uses precise stimulation of specific points throughout the body that follow specific channels, known as meridians. Activation of these points with pressure, hair-thin needles and now, e-stim and lasers, can improve blood flow, release tension, and enhance or unblock life-energy, known as “qi” or “chi.”
This release allows energy to flow more freely through the meridians, promoting relaxation, healing and the restoration and maintenance of proper function.
