Acupuncture is a branch of Traditional Chinese Medicine that treats the client by stimulating specialized meridian points on his or her body in order to harmonize wellness and reduce stress. These acupuncture points can be activated by the insertion of extremely thin filaments (or non-hollow needles), or by the use of massage techniques.
Acupuncture’s purpose is to restore optimal balance to the natural state of your body. When your mind and body are in a calmer state, there is less stress related injury to the digestive system, and your metabolism improves. Acupuncture can also help to reduce pain and decrease muscle spasm that could otherwise contribute to poor posture and impaired strength.
Acupuncture is the oldest medical system that is currently in practice today. It can also utilize warming modalities, cupping massage, and administration of patent herbs to assist the body in regulating imbalances.
