Acute Acupuncture: Acupuncture 

Acupuncture Massage & Treatment is a key component in traditional Chinese medicine and is used to help restore and harmonize the flow of energy, or life force, restoring the body’s natural balance through the insertion of very delicate needles into strategic points located on and around the body. This flow of this energy or life force is referred to as Qi or Chi.

The biomedical view is that acupuncture points may stimulate nerves endings by being placed into the origins and insertions of muscles though the connective tissue. This may stimulate and boost your body's natural painkillers supporting the immune system, reducing stress, and helping to facilitate sleep.

Depending on the condition(s) of the patient, these thin needles are placed from very superficial, just below the skin, to deep down to the bone, however each treatment depends on where the pathogenic Qi or disharmony is located.

For example, for a scar or acne the needles will get placed around the affected area increasing the circulation and blood flow to that specific area. Another example is with a sprain the needles will be placed locally to the depth of that muscle, or even to the bone.

Acupuncture Massage & Treatment is an ancient form of medicine used by the chinese that has been helping support the health, recovery, and overall well being of people for thousands of years
