Acupuncture is a form of alternative medicine originating from ancient China over 6,000 years ago. Acupuncture treats clients by manipulating thin, solid needles that have been inserted into specific acupuncture points in the skin. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, stimulating these points can help correct imbalances in the flow of qi, the energy force of the body that flows along channels known as meridians. Disruption of this qi is what traditional Chinese medical professionals say lead to disease.

There are approximately 365 acupuncture points that run along 12-14 different meridian channels. Acupuncture can range from the treatment of body aches and headaches to infertility and depression. In clinical practice, acupuncture is highly individualized and based on philosophy and intuition. Acupuncture provides all-natural, non-surgical, non-pharmaceutical pain relief, the elimination of tension and stress, the prevention of illness, and a dramatic improvement in health and vitality.
