What is Acupuncture?


Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine practice that involves the insertion of thin needles into specific points on the body to stimulate healing and balance.  For over 3,000 years Acupuncture has been used to effectively treat and prevent all types of physical and emotional diseases. It is one of the oldest, safest and most comprehensive systems of medicine in the world today.


It can improve health in several ways:

  1. Pain relief: Acupuncture can help relieve chronic pain by stimulating the release of endorphins, which are natural painkillers produced by the body.

  2. Stress reduction: Acupuncture can help reduce stress and promote relaxation by regulating the nervous system and reducing the body's stress response.

  3. Improved immune function: Acupuncture can help improve immune function by stimulating the body's natural defense mechanisms.

  4. Better sleep: Acupuncture can help regulate sleep patterns and promote better quality sleep.

  5. Enhanced mental health: Acupuncture can help improve mental health by reducing anxiety, depression, and other mood disorders.

Overall, acupuncture can help improve overall health and well-being by restoring balance to the body's natural systems and promoting healing from within.

​As a natural form of healing, acupuncture has the following benefits:

  • Provides drug-free pain relief

  • Effectively treats a wide range of acute and chronic ailments

  • Treats the underlying cause of disease and illness as well as the symptoms

  • Provides an holistic approach to the treatment of disease and illness

  • Integrates body, mind and emotions

  • Assists in the prevention against disease and illness

  • Maintenance of general well-being



Acupuncture takes a holistic approach to understanding normal function and disease processes and focuses as much on the prevention of illness as on the treatment.

Acupuncture treatment involves the insertion of fine, sterile needles into specific points along the body's meridians to clear energy blockages. The practitioner may also stimulate the acupuncture points using other methods, including moxibustion, cupping, laser therapy, electro-stimulation and massage, in order to re-establish the flow of energy.
