What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a therapeutic modality of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), and it has been practiced for 5,000 years.

Fine needles are inserted into specific points on the body to restore the balance of Yin and Yang and allow the Qi (vital energy) to flow freely through the channels or meridians.

Recent research has now verified that acupuncture:

  • stimulates immune function to increase your resistance to infections
  • releases endorphins to relax muscles and ease pain
  • regulates seratonin levels in the brain to reduce stress, anxiety, insomnia, and depression
  • normalizes pituitary, thyroid, pancreatic, and adrenal function to help correct imbalances of metabolism (especially of cholesterol and fat)

Acupuncture can dramatically increase overall vitality and energy!
