Acupuncture is one of the oldest continually practiced medical modalities in the world. Some estimates date the first Acupuncture needle to 5,000 years ago with Chinese Herbal medicine predating that.
Acupuncture is a safe, effective, chemical-free way to promote the body's remarkable self-healing abilities. It is used to prevent and treat disease, relieve pain, balance mood, enhance athletic performance, increase fertility, and improve overall health and wellness.
Points along each meridian are chosen by the practitioner based on an assessment made through observation of the client, tongue and pulse reading. Points are needled with utmost intentionality to realign balance within the client's body through redirection of Qi, or vital life force energy.
