Acupuncture is one of the oldest holistic therapeutic practices in the world with 3,000 years history.
Acupuncture involves the stimulation of specific points in the body to restore balance and encourage the body to heal itself.
There are over 400 acupuncture points on the body and each has a specific action. The stimulation is achieved by inserting sterile, single use, very thin needles into these acupuncture points.
Acupuncture is drug-free, chemical dependency-free and generally considered to be safe but occasionally as with all health treatments, may be associated with possible adverse reactions in individual cases.
Acupuncture and herbs are an integral part of Chinese medicine practice.
The idea of Chinese medicine, including acupuncture, is to encourage the body’s own healing ability and many conditions can benefit from it.
