Acupuncture Treatment

WhAT IS Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a holistic approach to healing that has been used for thousands of years in traditional Chinese medicine. Acupuncture is based on the belief that energy, called Qi (pronounced “chee”), flows through the body along pathways called meridians. When the flow of Qi is disrupted, it can lead to pain, illness, and other conditions. Acupuncture aims to restore the balance of Qi and improve overall health.

WhAT Conditions can Acupuncture Help With?

Acupuncture involves the insertion of thin needles into specific points on the body called acupoints. These points are located along the meridians and are believed to access the Qi flowing through the body. The needles are left in place for a period of time, typically 20-30 minutes, to allow the body to absorb the energy and promote healing.

Acupuncture can be used to treat a wide variety of conditions, including:

  • Pain management: Acupuncture can be used to alleviate chronic pain, such as back pain, neck pain, and headaches.
  • Mental health: Acupuncture can help to reduce stress, anxiety, and depression.
  • Digestive issues: Acupuncture can be used to treat conditions such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and acid reflux.
  • Fertility: Acupuncture can be used to improve fertility and increase the chances of conception.
  • Addiction: Acupuncture can be used to help people quit smoking and overcome addiction to drugs or alcohol.
