Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine that has been in use for over thousands of years and has been proven to help a variety of illnesses and prevent many common pathological ailments. This is a safe, painless, and an effective treatment for regaining health and addressing a variety of conditions. It works on the theory that Qi (pronounced as "chee"), a "life-force" that flows through meridians, keeps our bodies in harmony and allow for free movement. When the Qi is not balance, the body will present different symptoms, but the most noticeable symptom is pain. Placing fine, hair-like needles, in specific areas and at specific depths, helps to regulate the surplus or deficiencies of the Qi. Combining acupuncture with herbal medicine will regulate and balance the Qi, giving the body the ability to heal itself.
