Acupuncture care focuses on more than just pain management. The service we provide will bring healing in unexpected ways.
Acupuncture is a form of traditional Chinese medicine that has been practiced for thousands of years, and involves the use of needles and/or pressure and heat for the treatment and prevention of disease.
Chinese medical theory suggests that a vital life energy – Qi (pronounced ‘chee’ or ‘gee’) – circulates throughout the body in a number of channels called meridians. Qi is difficult to translate into English. It may be helpful to think of it in terms of its functions in the body – warming, transforming, defending, activating, containing. When a person is healthy, the right amount of Qi flows through the body; if there is too much, not enough, or a blockage or obstruction of Qi for any reason, ailments and disease occur.
Acupuncture can be used to treat conditions such as back, neck, facial, shoulder and muscle pain, sciatica, arthritis and headaches. Other conditions like abdominal, pelvic and menstrual pain, nerve pain and scar pain may also respond to acupuncture.
