Acupuncture … How it works

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.
