Acupuncture is an effective form of health care that has evolved into a complete and holistic medical system. Practitioners of acupuncture and Chinese medicine have used this noninvasive medical system to diagnose and help millions of people get well and stay healthy.

An acupuncturist will place fine, sterile needles at specific acupoints on the body. This activates the body’s Qi and promotes natural healing by enhancing recuperative power, immunity and physical and emotional health. It also can improve overall function and well-being. It is a safe, painless and effective way to treat a wide variety of medical problems.

If you are new to the idea of acupuncture as an effective treatment, and regard it as some sort of New Age medicine, think again. Acupuncture treatment has been used to treat a variety of conditions for thousands of years. It was the Chinese who discovered that placing tiny needles in the body’s strategic points can alter the flow of energy; today acupuncture is widely accepted and practiced all over the world.

You may be surprised to learn just how many conditions and illnesses can be treated by acupuncture. It is used to treat such ailments as high blood pressure, sore throat, and earache. Constipation, diarrhea, IBS and various food allergies can all be treated with the tiny needles, and acupuncture is highly effective in treating drug addiction or helping with quitting smoking. Acupuncture for back pain, arthritis and muscle spasms has become increasingly common, as has acupuncture treatment for anxiety, depression, insomnia, migraines and even common colds and the flu.
