Acupuncture has been used for over 3,000 years to safely and effectively

help restore and maintain good health to millions of individuals worldwide. It focuses

on the body as a whole and concentrates not only on symptoms, but also upon the root cause of imbalance which may be triggering and aggravating such symptoms.

Simplistically, it is based upon the belief that your body has pathways or meridians where internal energy flows. This vital energy is called Qi (pronounced as "chee"). Your body constantly strives to maintain a proper balance of Qi, so that when it is abundant and freely circulating, health and pain-free living results. Disease and pain are thought to occur when there is an obstruction or imbalance of Qi in the meridians.

Through the insertion of sterile hair-thin needles into specific locations (or acupoints) on the body, the energy of the meridians are affected, thereby correcting disharmony and helping reduce pain and poor health.
