Acupuncture

All living things possess an energetic life force the Chinese call "chi." This energy circulates along pathways throughout the body known as meridians. When these energy channels are blocked, the "chi" cannot flow freely, which causes physical, mental and emotional health imbalances. Acupuncture assists the body in healing itself by opening these meridians and stimulating the flow of chi, which encourages balance and radiant health.

But does it hurt?

Very fine, sterile needles are inserted into specific "acu-points" along the meridians in order to unblock the flow of energy. Each sterile needle is individually packaged for single use. Patients may experience a tingling or heavy sensation around the needled area, but there is little or no pain. In fact, treatments are energizing and relaxing at the same time, and most people look forward to experiencing symptom relief, and the sense of well-being and calm they feel afterwards.
