What is Acupuncture/ East Asian Medicine?

Acupuncture is a comprehensive healthcare system that originated in China over 3,000 years ago. It can be used to treat acute or chronic ailments, strengthen the immune system, and for pain management. After gathering information about your medical history, feeling your pulse and looking at your tongue, an Acupuncturist inserts extremely fine, stainless steel, sterile needles into specific points along the meridians (energetic pathways) of your body. The insertion of these needles signals the body to correct imbalances in the flow of Qi (life energy), and restore health and well-being.
