Acupuncture is an ancient health science which is used to successfully treat both pain and dysfunction in the body. The primary application of Acupuncture is the utilization of very slender painless needles placed in the skin at various locations to relieve pain or affect a body part or function.
Early Asian physicians discovered there is an energy network traversing on or just below the surface of the skin which communicates from the exterior to the internal organs and structures at over 1,000 "acupoints" on the body. This energy works in harmony with the body's circulatory, nervous, muscular, digestive, genitourinary and all other systems of the body. When this vital energy becomes blocked or weakened, an effect in a body system or anatomic location becomes evident. Stimulation of one or a combination of key acupoints on the body may restore harmony to the affected area.
