Acupuncture … How it works
Oriental Medical theory explains that pain and disease are caused
by either an imbalance or a blockage of energy circulating through
the body. Acupuncture restores the balance to the flow energy, returning
the body to a healthy state.
In an acupuncture treatment, thin sterile needles are inserted
at specific points on the body; these points are carefully selected
by the Licensed Acupuncturist according to the patient’s signs
and symptoms. Each treatment is tailored to the individual’s
needs. The acupuncture treatment corrects the imbalances and removes
the blockages of energy, thus restoring the body to health.
Emphasis is placed on understanding and treating the underlying
cause of each individual’s imbalance. This holistic approach
to health not only addresses physical complaints, but also emotional,
environmental and lifestyle conditions.
