Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese medicine used to alleviate pain and promote overall health. Acupuncture uses needles placed along invisible meridians that run throughout the body. Acupuncture points may be treated using cold lasers, magnets and electric pulses in addition to traditional acupuncture needles. Each meridian point has a specific meaning and can unblock and repair meridians and channels with vital energy or chi. Acupuncture through the stimulation of the meridians is able to restore balance and ergo health to the patient.
Acupuncture is used to treat a wide range of health problems, such as:
- Neck pain
- Persistent lowback pain
- Sports injuries
- Migrane & Tension Headaches
Acupuncture takes a holistic approach to understanding normal function and disease processes, and focuses as much on the prevention of illness as on the treatment.
