Acupuncture

Based on ancient Chinese medicine principles, acupuncture involves the insertion of long, thin needles into various points on the body to stimulate the flow of energy, or “qi”, and promote natural healing. By correcting imbalances and disruptions in the flow of qi at specific points near the skin, it is believed that the risk of disease can be lowered, and acupuncture has therefore become a safe and effective alternative to modern medicine and even surgery.
