What Is Acupuncture Therapy?


Acupuncture is a form of holistic medicine that takes into account the entire being- mind, body, and spirit. This method of treatment aims to restore the vital flow of energy in the body, also known as “Qi”, which circulates in the acupuncture meridians. When the meridians are blocked or deficient, illness and dis-ease occurs and causes pain, imbalance, and physical and emotional symptoms. Acupuncture therapy uses very fine needles inserted in specific points along the meridians that allows the specialist to access the vital flow of energy and restore balance and harmony. It is a safe method of treatment and patients report a warm, peaceful, and relaxing sensation during treatment.
