Acupuncture is an essential part of alternative medicine that has existed for over 3000 years. It is based on the philosophy that all living things are made up of vital inherent energy "Qi", which can promote the body's ability to heal itself.
Qi flows along meridians in the body; a blockage of energy causes disruptions in the signals our bodies receive from our brains. Acupuncture unblocks the signals so our brains can communicate with our entire body.
Acupuncture is primarily used for pain management. It can also be utilized for a variety of other reasons including:
- joint pain
- weight loss
- addictions (smoking cessation)
- menopausal symtoms
- disc herniations
