Acupuncture

Acupuncture has been practiced for 3000 years, with its origins in ancient China. It is a form of medicine, which works by stimulating specific points on the body with very fine needles. These points are used to regulate and maintain the body, and to nourish and restore function of the organs. This is not a painful or uncomfortable experience. Sensations vary, but people report feeling relaxed, or a dullness or heavy feeling. Acupuncture is used to treat a wide range of conditions, from pain relief, sports injuries, fatigue, fertility, digestive issues to stress and anxiety and everything in between.

How Does Acupuncture Help Healthy People

Acupuncture is great for disease prevention by improving the patient’s overall well being.
