What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is an ancient science which is use to successfully treat both pain and dysfunction in the body.  Authorities agree the science is between 5,000 – 7,000 years old.

Acupuncture appears strange to most Westerners as its primary application is the utilization of very slender painless needles placed in the skin at various locations to relieve pain or effectively treat a body part or function.

Early Asian physicians discovered there's an energy network traversing on or just below the surface of the skin, which communicates from the exterior to the internal organs and structures at over 1,000 “acupoints” on the body.  This energy works in harmony with the body’s circulatory, nervous, muscular, digestive, genitourinary, and all other systems of the body.  When this vital energy becomes blocked or weakened, an effect in a body system or anatomic location becomes evident.  Stimulation, or one of a combination of key acupoints on the body, may restore harmony to the affected area.

Historians have stated, “More people have benefited from acupuncture over the course of fifty centuries than the combined total of all other healing sciences, both ancient and modern”.
