Acupuncture is a healthcare system for the treatment and prevention of disease. It helps the body stimulate its own natural healing process in acute and chronic conditions for both physical and emotional health. It is a safe, painless and effective way to treat a wide variety of medical issues.
At the core is the philosophy that Qi (“chee”) or ‘energy’ flows throughout the body. A person’s health is influenced by the quality, quantity and balance of Qi. Qi flows through pathways in the body and when there is an obstruction to the flow of Qi, it can lead to various signs and symptoms or health concerns. The acupuncturist will open these blockages, allowing the Qi to freely circulate throughout the body, eliminating pain and restoring balance in the body
Getting the most out of treatment
For the best treatment results, keep a few things in mind:

- Wear loose, comfortable clothes
- Bring any question to discuss with your acupuncturist
- Refrain from overexertion, drugs or alcohol for up to six hours after treatment
- Keep all of your appointments, as each visit builds upon the previous ones
