What is acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a form of traditional Chinese medicine that is over 2000 years old.  

It involves inserting very fine needles into energy channels of the body, known as meridians.  

The body has two main forces; the Yin and the Yang.  

Acupuncture is used to restore the balance between these two forces.  


How does acupuncture work?

The placement of needles promotes healing through stimulation of the nervous system at the local area of pain, spinal cord and brain.

It also improves blood flow and the releases endorphins, the bodies natural pain-killer.
