Benefits of Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a 3,000 year old technique of Traditional Chinese Medicine used to treat a wide range of conditions, from indigestion, to anxiety, to neck or back pain. 

Acupuncture works by stimulating the body to balance itself and it does that through complex neurochemical pathways that influence the immune system and nervous system. The practice is based on an ancient philosophy that explains how our body is balanced through Qi (or Chi) that flows along pathways called meridians. When our Qi, or flow of energy, is blocked, it can cause imbalance which leads to pain, illness or lack of function. Acupuncture helps to release blocked qi and stimulate the body’s natural healing response.
