Acupuncture

Originating from China, acupuncture has been practiced for more than 2000 years to promote healing and improved function. It is believed that our body have meridians where "chi" or energy flows through. When this energy becomes blocked as a result of pain or health conditions, acupuncture can be used to remove the blockage. Acupuncture involves the insertion of fine needles on specific points on the skin to produce therapeutic effect. Additionally, it stimulates the nervous system to release chemicals to alleviate the ailment.

Modern-day acupuncture is very popular and is proven to be an effective, safe and gentle alternative with no side effects. Today, it is used to treat a range of health conditions including pain, headaches, asthma, menstrual problems, menopause, injuries, skin issues, and many more. It also balances and improves organ functions, hormone levels, body systems, etc.
