Acupuncture

 Acupuncture is one of the greatest gifts from the Chinese culture. The earliest document about acupuncture dates back to around 5,000 years ago. “Emperor Nei-Jing” is the bible of Chinese medicine and acupuncture and was completed approximately 2,000 years ago. It records the twelve regular meridians that we use in Chinese medicine today and is still the most influential book in today’s Chinese medicine society.

Acupuncture is a method of encouraging the body to promote natural healing and to improve functioning. This is done by inserting needles and applying heat or electrical stimulation at very precise acupuncture points. One of the best features of our acupuncture services is that the needle insertion is just a light touch and is painless. Yet, the result of our acupuncture treatment is profound because the acupuncture point is located very precisely. We always use sterilized, disposable needles for acupuncture treatments.

A 1998 study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine showed that medical doctors refer their patients to acupuncturists more than any other “alternative” care provider; the same study also revealed that 51% of medical doctors believe acupuncture to be efficacious and of value.Complimentary Medicine Goes Mainstream – Alternative Therapies Offer Pain Relief to Cancer Patients.
