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.

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.
