Acupuncture is one of the most time honored systems of healing in the world. Developed in China thousands of years ago, it is used to treat illness, prevent disease and improve total well-being by the activation of the body’s natural pain control and healing mechanisms.

Current research has demonstrated that the human body is a complex bioelectric system. Energy or Qi is believed to circulate throughout the body along 14 well-defined energy pathways or meridians. Points on the skin along these pathways are energetically connected to specific organs, body structures, and systems. These energy pathways may become blocked and the flow disrupted resulting in pain and disease.

Through the stimulation of defined acupuncture points, the energy pathways can be made whole and  balanced allowing the body to heal itself. Acupuncture stimulates the production of the body’s natural “pain killers”, deactivates trigger points, increases circulation in the problem area, and promotes tissue regeneration.  Thus, healing is achieved.
