What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a traditional Eastern medical therapy that has been in existence for thousands of years. This effective form of healthcare has evolved into a complete and holistic medical system. Practitioners of acupuncture and Chinese medicine have used this centuries old, non-invasive medical system to diagnose and help millions of people get well and stay healthy. The goal of Eastern medicine is to find the pattern of disharmony, the root cause, and resolve the imbalance by treating the whole body. This allows the innate healing mechanism of the body to take over and encourages the body back to its natural state of balance or homeostasis.
