ACUPUNCTURE


Acupuncture can be dated as far back as 4,000 years ago as a method of treatment in China using thin, filiform needles that are inserted into specific points on the body. Acupuncture points lie along meridians throughout the body. Qi (energy) flows along these meridians and disruption of the free flow of Qi results in pain or dysfunction.  The clinician will choose individualized points based off of Traditional Chinese Medicine diagnosis to correct imbalances in Qi flow and restore health.  Schedule an acupuncture appointment online.
