Acupuncture is one of the traditional branches of Chinese Medicine. It has been used for thousands of years as an effective technique to catalyze the healing process. An acupuncturist gently stimulates different areas, or points, on the body with very fine needles to enhance emotional and physical health.
In addition to bringing a sense of wellbeing and emotional balance, this stimulation has been shown to activate the vascular (blood), endocrine (chemical), sympathetic and parasympathetic (nerve/electrical) communication networks within the body. The National Institute of Health and the World Health Organization have recognized acupuncture as an effective treatment for diseases in 26 to 40 disease categories.
