Acupuncture has been healing individuals for over 5,000 years!
Early Chinese physicians discovered that people have an energy network traversing their bodies, just below the surface of their skin. This network communicates from the exterior to the internal organs and is made up of over 1000 “Acupoints” on the body. This energy works in harmony with the body’s circulatory, nervous, muscular, digestive, genitourinary and all other systems. When this vital energy becomes blocked or weakened, an effect in a body system or anatomic location becomes evident. By stimulating one or more key Acupoints on the body, acupuncturists can restore harmony to the affected area.
Historians state “more people have benefited from acupuncture over the course of fifty centuries than the combined total of all other healing sciences, both ancient and modern.”
If you’ve heard a doctor tell you:
“There is nothing wrong.”
“It is all in your head.”
“Sorry, you’ll have to learn to live with it.”
Then an acupuncture session may be for you!
