Acupuncture is a method of restoring energy balance Qi to promote healing and functioning through inserting needles at precise points on the body. Heat (moxibustion) and electrical stimulator are often applied over the points to strengthen Qi.

Acupuncture is currently widely practiced in countries around the world and is increasingly used in the United States.  The United Nations supports its use.  For more than 2000 years it has been successfully used to treat more people than other health methods combined.

Meridians, channels of energy, run like energy currents through the body.  When blockage in one part of a channel occurs, it impedes the flow in others.  Acupuncture removes the blockage and revives the usual flow through the meridians, restores Qi and helps the body's internal organs to be balanced. 

Acupuncture can positively improve health and wellness, treat various medical conditions and prevent illness.  Acupuncture is most often associated with pain control; however, it can also be used for many medical disorders or in support of other medical treatments.

After the needles have been inserted, one may feel a sensation of heaviness or tingling. Some people feel minimal pain, most feel no pain at all.  The needles are sterile and disposable posing no risk of infection.

Does acupuncture hurt?

Acupuncture, when administered by a competent and well- trained individual, is rarely painful. The needles are extremely slender and are very different from the syringe needles used in western medicine. A sensation such as a heaviness or distended feeling indicates that the acupuncture is working. Acupuncture is very relaxing and rarely there is discomfort.
