Acupuncture is a form of Chinese medicine that has been practiced for centuries. The fundamental principle of acupuncture is to balance the body by removing blockages. An acupuncture needle is placed in a specific acupuncture point on the meridian and removes these blockages and allows for the free flow of blood, body fluids and qi (our life force). In essence, acupuncture treats the root cause of the disease and not just the symptoms.
Here is a list of some of the things that acupuncture can treat:
- Pain issues (sciatica, low back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, osteoarthritis, etc)
- Common cold and flu
- Gynecological disorders
- Autoimmune disorders
- Gastrointestinal dysfunction
- Side effects of chemotherapy and radiation
- PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)
