Acupuncture is an ancient medical practice that originated in China and dates back 3000-4000 years. In acupuncture treatments, hair-thin needles are gently inserted into different points on the body to correct imbalances and promote circulation. Today, acupuncture receives wide acceptance as a respected, valid and effective form of health care. When most people think about acupuncture, they are familiar with its use for pain control. Acupuncture also has a proven track record of treating and addressing a variety of endocrine, circulatory and systemic conditions. Acupuncture promotes natural healing and also enhances recuperative power and immunity. Acupuncture supports physical and emotional health and improves overall function and well-being.
Chinese herbal medicine constitutes one of the longest, most documented, forms of medicine in history.
Herbal prescriptions are sophisticated and individualized, and take into consideration the patient’s constitution, medical condition, and potential risks and benefits that may arise from dietary supplements and other medications.
