Traditional Chinese medicine has been practiced and refined over thousands of years. It is widely accepted throughout the world as a safe and effective complement to western medicine.
A key component of traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture is most commonly used to treat pain.
Acupuncture involves the insertion of extremely thin needles through your skin at strategic points on your body. This technique balances the flow of energy or life force (known as Qi) flowing through pathways (meridians) in your body. By inserting needles into specific points along these meridians, your energy flow will re-balance.
Acupuncture is recognized by the National Institute of Health (NIH) and the World Health Organization (WHO) as an effective therapy.
