This 4000+ year-old ancient art has been used to combat illness and restore health. Acupuncture began after the discovery that stimulation of specific areas of the body will affect the function of certain organs/areas of the body. This is performed with the use of very fine sterilized needles placed along ”meridians” into “acupuncture points”. Each acupuncture point on the meridians belongs to a body system or organ, and has a specific effect to help treat the condition the patient is experiencing.
Treatment with Acupuncture provides an effective, safe and drugless therapy for the client, without harmful side effects.
