Acupuncture is a Holistic Medicine rooted in ancient China. It helps the body to heal itself by correcting imbalances in the mind, body and spirit. Acupuncture can be used to relieve physical or emotional pain, manage illnesses or as preventative medicine. Needling is most commonly known in acupuncture, but it is only one of the many modalities acupuncturists use in Chinese Medicine. Cupping, Gua Sha, Moxibustion and Tui Na are a few others your acupuncturist may incorporate into your treatment.
