Acupuncture

Over 5000 years old, Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine have been successfully used for the treatment of several ailments.

Acupuncture consists of the gentle insertion of very fine sterile needles into specific acupuncture points. These points are located in Meridians that run throughout the body, connecting lower and upper parts into an intricately woven web.

When there is a blockage of the flow of energy in any part of the meridians, there’s usually pain and some sort of imbalance. The use of acupuncture helps to correct this imbalance naturally and bring the body back to its natural state of health.

Acupuncture is recognized by the World Health Organization and the National Institutes of Health as safe and non-invasive therapy.

Common issues treated by acupuncture:

  • Mialgias – pain of all kinds

Moxibustion is an essential part of Traditional Chinese Medicine. It is an adjunct therapy used for certain conditions. Moxa (Mugwart – Artemisia Vulgaris) is used to warm regions and acupuncture points with the intention of stimulating circulation through the points and inducing a smoother flow of blood and qi.
