A time-honoured approach to the treatment and prevention of disease, pain and illness
A natural form of healing with origins tracing back over 2000 years in China, Acupuncture is an effective and popular form of health care. The treatment involves inserting and manipulating fine sterile needles into various acupuncture points of the body’s meridians to promote health, balance and well being. Acupuncture points are gateways to influence, redirect, increase or decrease the body’s vital substance, qi. Qi, pronounced chee, is our “life energy” and flows through the body’s invisible channels, or meridians. If the pathways are blocked or the flow of qi is inadequate it can lead to bodily dysfunction.
Some reasons for this dysfunction can include stress, poor diet, disease, injury, and lifestyle choices. Conditions that are commonly treated using acupuncture are neck or cervical pain, shoulder and back pain, anxiety, depressions, insomnia, headaches, sinus problems, arthritis, tennis elbow, frozen shoulder, sports injuries, stress related disorders, among many others.
