Acupuncture

Acupuncture originated in China thousands of years ago and is widely practiced around the world.  In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) acupuncture treatments are delivered based upon the theory of YinYang.  YinYang are inseparable opposed ideas existing in perfect harmony.  When the balance of YinYang is disturbed, a disharmony will occur and manifest itself as a pattern of disease.  The purpose of acupuncture is to help the body heal itself by inserting thin needles into specific points on the body; thus harmonizing YinYang.

Modern scientific clinical research has shown that acupuncture acts on the body through various mechanisms. Acupuncture works on the body through modulation of: the nervous system, connective tissue, and the endocrine system.  Research has also shown that acupuncture is non-specific and has an auto-regulatory effect on the body.  No matter which philosophy is used, acupuncture always  works to help the body heal itself.
