What Is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is an Ancient Asian healing technique, based on the Taoist philosophy of balancing energy meridians within the body. Fine needles are painlessly inserted at key points corresponding to body organs to relieve pain and improve body function.
How Does It Work?
An energy force, known as Qi (pronounced chee), flows throughout the body along pathways called 'meridians'. If the flow of Qi is insufficient or blocked, the body becomes unbalanced and disease may occur. Acupuncture points are specific locations where meridians come to the surface of the skin. Acupuncture needles are gently inserted at these points to restore the flow of Qi and thus, restore balance within the body.
What Should I Expect?
First Sessions usually last one hour and Regular Sessions typically last 40 to 60 minutes. Though the insertion of needles might not sound appealing, the reality is that the fine needles cause little discomfort if any at all. Once the needles are inserted, most people find this experience to be quite relaxing.
