Acupuncture is the insertion of very thin, metal needles to stimulate specific points (acupuncture points) on the body. Acupuncture is a component of the ancient practice of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) used to diagnose, treat and prevent disease. TCM is based on the belief that the body's vital energy (qi) flows along energy pathways (meridians) in the body to maintain balance. When the body is healthy, qi flows smoothly, but when the qi flow is disrupted, it can cause disease or illness. Acupuncture works on improving the flow of qi, restoring balance and activating the body's internal healing abilities. It is an effective treatment alone or in combination with convertional therapies.

Musculoskeletal: Acute and Chronic Pain, Sports injuries, Arthritis, Sciatica, Frozen Shoulder, Tenni Elbow, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
