Acupuncture & Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)

​What's is acupuncture?

  • Acupuncture is an ancient practice of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

  • Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioners believe the human body has more than 2,000 acupuncture points connected by pathways known as meridians. 

  • These pathways create an energy flow (Qi, pronounced "chee") through the body that is responsible for overall health. 

  • Blocked pathways or disrupted pathways lead to disease.

  • Acupuncture is the practice of penetrating the skin with thin, solid, metallic needles which are then activated through gentle and specific movements of the practitioner's hands or with electrical stimulation. Trust us, it's not as scary as it sounds!

  • By applying these acupuncture needles to specific points, it is thought to improve the flow of Qi, thereby improving health.
