What is Acupuncture?
The theory and practice of Acupuncture is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine, a comprehensive natural health care system that has been used in Asia for over 5,000 years. Acupuncturists stimulate acupuncture points found at specific locations on the surface of the body by inserting very thin needles through the skin. The general theory of acupuncture is that health depends on the balance and circulation of nutrients and energy called Qi (pronounced 'chee') through a network of channels or 'meridians'. This network connects every organ and every part of the body and regulates its physiological processes. Pain and illness are therefore the result of energy blockages in the body. Various lifestyle factors such as a poor diet, emotional disturbance, lack of rest and stress may also cause imbalance and lead to disease. The stimulation of acupuncture points helps restore a sufficient flow of Qi throughout the body and help your body return to its optimal health!

What should I expect during my visit?
Acupuncture is the left hand of a true Chinese Medical practitioner. With this in mind, acupuncturists use a sophisticated system of ancient diagnostic methods that take into consideration the person as a whole, rather than isolated symptoms. Acupuncture treatments are tailored to an individuals specific needs and a trained acupuncturists will create a treatment plan that will be most beneficial for you. The aim is not only to eliminate or alleviate symptoms, but more importantly to treat the underlying root cause and improve the quality of life.

Does acupuncture hurt?
Modern acupuncture needles are stainless steel, between one-half and three inches long, ultra-fine and quite flexible. They are pre-sterilized and disposable (single use). When the acupuncture needles are tapped into the skin, there is rarely any sense of discomfort or pain. Some patients may feel a slight sensation or slight tingle. Most patients find acupuncture treatments to be a relaxing and meditative experience.
