TRADITIONAL CHINESE MEDICINE STYLE ACUPUNCTURE
Traditional Chinese Medicine, explains that health is the result of a harmonious balance of the complementary extremes of the energy flow through meridians (pathways) in the body.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The Body’s Energy (Qi) or “Chi” flows along specific pathways in the body known as Meridians. When Qi becomes blocked, deficient, or stagnant, we experience the signs and symptoms of pain and illness. One purpose of acupuncture is to prevent or modify the perception of pain and is thus a form of pain control. Acupuncture may also provide relief from symptoms occurring due to many illnesses and conditions. It is used as a complementary approach along with regular health care for better quality of life.
WHAT ABOUT THE NEEDLES?
The needles used are of the highest quality, pre-sterilized and disposable. With proper technique, the needles that are thinner than a hair, cause little or no discomfort, and are painless after placement. Often, patients will notice tingling or a feeling of heaviness during the treatment as the needle connects with the Qi. Patients often report feeling very relaxed from a treatment.
