Acupuncture is the stimulation of specific points located on the surface of the skin, which have the ability to alter various biochemical and physiological conditions in order to achieve the desired effect

Those points are stimulated by the insertion of hair thin disposable stainless steel needles.

Just as the Western Medical Doctor monitors the blood flowing through blood vessels and the messages transported via the nervous system, the Acupuncturist assesses the flow and distribution of Qi, also known as Vital Energy, within its pathways known as meridians or channels.

Modern research shows that acupuncture stimulates the release of endorphins, serotonin and other neuro-chemicals that promote circulation and hormonal balance as well as reduce pain and inflammation.

The aim of acupuncture is not only to eliminate or alleviate symptoms but also to treat the underlying cause and improve the quality of life.
