Acupuncture is a time-tested therapy
Acupuncture is a therapeutic technique that uses very fine sterilized, disposable needles to stimulate certain points near the surface of the body. This technique has been used for healing and practiced in China for thousands of years. The basic theory of Acupuncture is that the healthy well-being of our body is determined by the free flow of ‘Qi’ (Energy) through the channels under the skin. When the free flow of ‘Qi’ is obstructed, pain and illness begin and the body is out of balance. These needles are left in the body for a period of time to achieve a variety of stimulation and therapeutic effects. Once the free flow of ‘Qi’ is maintained through therapeutic effects, the body regains its balance and the disease is resolved.
