Acupuncture is a technique involving the insertion of extremely thin stainless steel, disposable needles into the skin at select points or points of tenderness. This sets in motion an elegant interplay of the body’s own energies, restoring balance to the body, mind and spirit.
This age-old system of medicine has stood the test of thousands of years and yet continues to rise above and improve health even in our modern western culture. The theory that surrounds the practice dates back as much as 4000-5000 years.
For many contemporary practitioners, including naturopathic physicians, their practices are traditional and defined by these theories of the fundamental principles: Yin, Yang, Qi and Zang Fu. This sophisticated yet subtle method of treatment is so effective because of its focus on each individual’s particular needs. Your treatment will be tailored to address your specific imbalances, and will revitalize you in a relaxed state.
