Acupuncture is based on the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and has a history of more than 3000 years of successfully diagnosing, treating and preventing illness.
Your body is interconnected by meridians and pathways through which vital energy flows. The Acupuncturist inserts very fine, pre-sterilized, disposable (one time use) surgical grade stainless steel needles into specific points along these meridians. This allows your energy flow to be manipulated, aiding in both physical and mental ailments.
Modern research has shown that stimulating acupuncture points decreases inflammation, increases endorphins to relieve pain, regulates blood circulation and hormone secretion, and boosts the immune system.
