Acupuncture

Acupuncture works to restore the normal functions by stimulating certain points on the twenty meridians to promote health and balance. Imbalances can occur on the physical, emotional, or psycho-spiritual level. Acupuncture treatment involves using thin sterile disposable needles to stimulate points along the meridians to improve channel flow resulting in natural balance of the body.

In a western medical perspective, acupuncture safely and effectively alters the vascular, hormonal, and neurological systems. Numerous western scientific studies have shown the following benefits of acupuncture:
