What is acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a traditional Asian healing system with a history going back thousands of years. It originated in China, and later branched into different styles in Japan, Korea, and other Asian countries. Acupuncture is a holistic, natural method of healing through restoring the body’s original harmony and balance. This healing art is based on maintaining the free flow of the body’s energy, or qi (pronounced “chee”) to stop pain, restore health, and also to prevent illness. A typical treatment may consist of the insertion of acupuncture needles, as well as an herbal medicine prescription. We also make nutritional recommendations based on your condition. Ask us about microcurrent therapy as well!
