Ancient wisdom for modern health.
Acupuncture is an important part of ancient Chinese healing, called TCM - or Traditional Chinese Medicine. This system of healing has been practised for three or four thousand years! Your acupuncturist inserts very small, thin needles into your skin at specific points all over the body, with the aim of restoring the body’s natural harmony and health.
TCM acupuncture works with the belief that the body consists of hot and cold energy (or, yin and yang) and has the goal of finding the natural balance between the two. This type of acupuncture also considers the concept of Qi, (pronounce chee), which is thought of as a life-force energy that’s essential to optimal health. Qi is thought to run through the body on meridians, and if the Qi is disrupted or blocked, it can result in illness.
Sure, these concepts aren’t part of Western Medicine, and aren’t scientifically proven. However, beyond a shadow of a doubt, acupuncture is an effective healing treatment for so many people, relieving both the symptoms as well as the root causes of various ailments.
Restore your inner balance.
Acupuncture can heal hormone imbalances, improve fertility, boost the mood, reduce stress, alleviate lethargy and increase energy, reduce or eliminate pain, and even be an alternative to Western medicines and procedures in certain cases.
