What is Acupuncture?

Several thousand years ago, East Asian practitioners discovered that the body forms disharmonies as a result of the various physical and mental stresses of life. Oriental medical theory explains these disharmonies as an imbalance of opposing forces called yin and yang. This imbalance disrupts the movement of the body's vital energy (qi) along the meridian pathways, which are channels through which the body's energy is thought to flow. Acupuncture restores the smooth flow of qi. By inserting and manipulating needles at specific points on the body, I can help to return the body to its natural balance and promotes the body's ability to heal itself

Having evolved over thousands of years, acupuncture is one of the oldest continually practiced medical modalities in the world. It is now used by one third of the world's population as a means of primary health care and is endorsed by the World Health Organization for it's effectiveness in treating over 40 conditions, such as depression, headaches, allergies, and stress.
