Acupuncture is a therapy used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) involving the use of thin needles being inserted into specific locations in the body. Acupuncture points are located on energy channels called meridians through which Qi flows. Qi is an ancient term which describes vital energy and life force and can be blocked, deficient or in states of unbalance when a condition or injury is present.
Acupuncturists are successful in treating conditions of gynecology, gastroenterology, neurology, low back pain, arthritis, injuries and musculo-skeletal disorders, headaches & migraines, stress, addictions, immune system disorders, respiratory system disorders, depression, and more.
A careful TCM examination takes place before points are chosen which involves questioning, observations and evaluations of pulses on the wrist and appearance of the tongue. An individualized protocol is then developed and needles are placed into points corresponding to the health picture of the patient. Acupuncture appointments are 45 minutes long and it is recommended that visits be scheduled once per week.
