Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is an ancient form of healing which addresses the human body as a whole, encompassing Mind, Body, and Spirit. Acupuncture is an integral component of TCM which involves the insertion of thin, hair like needles into specific acupoints to achieve therapeutic effects. The main goal of acupuncture is to regulate, circulate and balance the Qi and Blood of the body.
When harmony is acheived within the internal organs of the body, the individual will be in good health and enjoy a higher quality of life. Many factors can cause the body to be out of balance. For example, stress, diet, and overworking. However equilibrium can be achieved through regulation via Acupuncture and TCM. It is better to prevent a problem before it occurs than to solve the problem after it has manifested. Acupuncture can boost the immune system, rejuvinate the body’s energy, maintain inner balance, and calm the mind for clearer thinking.
Acupuncture is relatively painless and has no adverse side effects when administered from well trained professionals.
