Acupuncture is a form of Traditional Chinese Medicine that has been practiced for over 3,000 years to restore and maintain health. It is the insertion of very fine, sterile needles at specific points on the body known to impact the fluidity of the body's "Qi". Qi is considered the life force, or vital energy that courses through the meridian systems of the body. By inserting needles into the skin, they target the root of any imbalance and generate harmony. Acupuncture stimulates the self healing mechanism of the body to begin well being of mind, body and spirit.
