What is Acupuncture?


​As a natural form of healing, acupuncture has the following benefits:

  • Provides drug-free pain relief

  • Effectively treats a wide range of acute and chronic ailments

  • Treats the underlying cause of disease and illness as well as the symptoms

  • Provides an holistic approach to the treatment of disease and illness

  • Integrates body, mind and emotions

  • Assists in the prevention against disease and illness

  • Maintenance of general well-being


For over 3,000 years Acupuncture has been used to effectively treat and prevent all types of physical & emotional diseases. It is one of the oldest, safest and most comprehensive systems of medicine in the world today.


The system focuses on restoring and strengthening a flow of life energy at a deep core level. It powerfully encourages healing of the body, mind and emotions and supports an elevation of consciousness and awakening of the spirit. This modality is used by one quarter of the world’s population. 

Today, Acupuncture is an effective, natural and increasingly popular form of health care that is being used by people from a wide range of cultural and social backgrounds.

Acupuncture takes a holistic approach to understanding normal function and disease processes and focuses as much on the prevention of illness as on the treatment.

Acupuncture treatment involves the insertion of fine, sterile needles into specific points along the body's meridians to clear energy blockages. The practitioner may also stimulate the acupuncture points using other methods, including moxibustion, cupping, laser therapy, electro-stimulation and massage, in order to re-establish the flow of energy.
