Acupuncture is a thorough and ancient medical art that is applicable to the wide range of health concerns posed by today’s modern world.
Having originated in China approximately 5,000 years ago, acupuncture is a meticulously orchestrated system of medicine in which the individual is considered an inseparable sum of physical, emotional, and spiritual aspects. Today acupuncture is practiced all over the world, and includes many styles and traditions.
How it works
Acupuncture involves the insertion of sterile, solid needles into specific acupoints. The acupuncture points are located on meridians that interconnect throughout the body. Once the needle has been placed on the selected point, it activates the movement of qi (often translated energy or life force) through the network of meridians.
An acupuncture session harmonizes the intricate inner workings of the physiological, emotional, and spiritual states by implementing various treatment principles. The treatment is an elegant and multifaceted means of adjusting deficiencies and excesses, thereby instilling a feeling of deep relaxation, inner peace, and rejuvenation.
