Stress & Reduce Pain
Acupuncture is mainly used to treat pain. This form of holistic care involves the insertion of very thin needles through the skin at strategic points on the body. It is best used for healing and promoting overall wellness, stress management, and both multiple physical and mental health issues.
Traditional Chinese medicine describes acupuncture as a procedure for balancing one’s chi or qi (chee), the flow of energy or life force believed to flow through pathways (meridians) in the body. To re-balance one’s chi, we insert tiny needles into the specific points along these meridians.
To ensure the best possible treatment customized to each individual patient, acupuncture sessions may also involve cupping, ear seeds, tui na, electro stimulation, nutrition, and other holistic services.
