About Acupuncture

Acupuncture functions by balancing energy within the body. Don’t let the idea of needles put you off — most patients barely feel a thing as the hair-thin needles go in. While each person experiences acupuncture differently, most people feel only a minimal amount of sensation as the needles are inserted. Once the needles are in most patients experience a feeling of relaxation and well-being that lasts for many hours after the treatment. Chinese Medicine is a complete and self-contained medicine, one of the world’s two oldest continuous medical traditions.  Chinese Medicine is also the world’s 2nd largest medical system serving over 1.6 billion people world wide.  Chinese Medicine is fully integrated into the Public Health systems of China and Japan and is recognized as a major medical system by the World Health Organization.

During its history of continuous development over the last 2500 years Chinese Medicine has refined its principles of diagnosis and treatment of diseases to a high degree of accuracy by the cumulative experience of centuries of Chinese doctors.
