Is acupuncture for you?
Acupuncture treatments are a safe, effective, drug free therapy that has been clinically proven to alleviate pain, treat and prevent disease and restore balance and homeostasis in the body. Acupuncture is based on natural laws, which describe the movement of life energy (called Chi or Qi) in nature and in the body. This life energy flows through the body along precise pathways. When the Chi in the body is balanced and flows properly, we are healthy. When the Chi is imbalanced, we experience distress and illness.
Through the use of hair-thin disposable needles inserted into the acupuncture points or the use of heat at those points (moxabustion), energy is brought into greater harmony, which assists your body’s ability to heal itself.
In addition, to its function as preventative medicine, acupuncture is often effective in treating physical conditions such as arthritis, asthma, back pain, headaches, high blood pressure, gynecological and fertility problems, rheumatism, sciatica and ulcers. Some people receive help with emotional conditions, including anxiety, depression, panic attacks, confusion or despair.
