Acupuncture is very fine single use sterile needles. Inserted into the Chinese meridians to assist healing, Chinese Medicine has been used for 5000 years with tremendous results in treating many illnesses.
The theory of Acupuncture is that the insertion of very fine needles into specific points on the body stimulates the flow of qi or energy. The points occur on meridians or channels that flow through the body and connect to the vital organs. A skilled Acupuncturist can diagnose subtle imbalances within the organ system and take action to re-balance it.
