ACUPUNCTURE

Acupuncture is one of the oldest and most commonly used medical procedures in the world. This treatment modality encourages the body to promote natural healing and to improve functioning. The insertion of very fine, sterile, single use needles into precise acupuncture points on the skin aids in the stimulation and smooth flow of energy (Qi) and blood. Electro-stimulation and cupping techniques, as well as warming moxibustion, are also used in combination to enhance desired healing outcomes. According to Chinese Medicine theory, the human body consists of 20 meridians; 14 of which have acu-points situated along them. These acupuncture meridians conduct the body’s Qi between the surface of the body and the internal organs and tissues. If the qi does not flow properly, the meridians become blocked and thus illness results. Acupuncture works to regulate the flow of qi and blood through the meridians, thereby nourishing organs and tissues, opening blockages, relieving pain and calming the mind. It is commonly known to be very effective in treating pain disorders and is also used for a wide range of internal problems such as:

·        lower back pain and sciatica

·        acute and chronic body pains

·        headaches/migraines
