Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is one of the oldest and most commonly used forms of medicine in the world. It is rooted in 5000 years of practice and has been verified by modern research. According to TCM, there is an energy network, which travels under the surface of our skin and communicates with our organs, nerves, circulatory system, hormones, muscles, digestive tract and all systems of the body. When this energy network is compromised, by blockage or weakness, pain or maladies will be observed.
The goal of acupuncture is to restore balance and proper energy flow to our body, through insertion of fine needles (sterile, disposable needles) into the skin at specific points or points of tenderness. This will encourage health and healing of all of our cells, organs and tissues.
