What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a healing art practiced for thousands of years in China. It involves inserting hair thin needles in specific points on the body to treat a variety of conditions. As its effectiveness is demonstrated by modern medical researchers, this minimally invasive procedure becomes available to serve patients all over the world.
How can it help me?

The World Health Organization (WHO) recognizes acupuncture for over 50 conditions. Among them the most often seen in an acupuncture clinic are: pain and other musculoskeletal and neurological disorders such as low back pain, shoulder and knee pain due to injury or aging, headaches and migraines, paralysis following a stroke, mental/emotional problems, respiratory problems, gynecological and reproductive problems, and gastrointestinal problems. Within the confines of the current medical systems in the United States, many patients seek out the help of an acupuncturist only after they have exhausted the conventional treatment options. Although acupuncture has performed much wonder for these patients, it truly shines as a protocol to harness your body’s own healing power when a problem just starts to develop or as a preventive measure to tune your body to its optimal health.
