What is Acupuncture Therapy?

Acupuncture Therapy, is a procedure that places tiny needles into proper acupoints along the meridians, helps regulate the body’s energy flow, which alleviates energy blockages and allows the body to regain a state of balance, physical, emotional and spiritual.

Modern scientific research has proven that these needles, placed in the body, will stimulate the nervous system to release pain-killing and inflammation-reducing substances to the blood circulation. Pain, swelling, and inflammation in the body can be relieved and immunological function can be enhanced to better resist bacterial and viral infections.
An acupuncturist analyzes the individual client’s energy patterns and uses needles and herbs to bring them into harmony. The well-balanced, freely circulating energy creates an environment in which the body, mind and spirit can heal itself.

Acupuncture therapy has wide applications. The world health organization has officially recognized acupuncture as suitable for the treatment of more than two hundred common clinical disorders. These would include: Gastrointestinal disorders, urogenital disorders, gynecological problems, muscle and joint pain, respiratory problems, circulatory disorders, immune system disorders, endocrine disorders, neurological disorders, headache, emotional problems, addictions, pediatrics, and supportive therapy dealing with chronic pain, basic energy enhancement and harmony.
