What is acupuncture 

Acupuncture is a healing technique of inserting and manipulating tiny, thread-width needles into various points on the body to relieve pain or for therapeutic purposes. It is a Chinese healing technique with documented records stretching back for over 3000 years. The theory behind acupuncture (and indeed all of traditional Chinese medicine) is that to treat diseases and chronic disorders, one needs to take a holistic view of the entire body and understand the interactions of the various organs, systems and tissue that comprises our body. By inserting needles into points along the body’s meridians, a skilled acupuncturist can let the patient’s body engage with meridians of inner energy flows. Just as people often practice the same golf swing to increase consistency, or do mental exercises to keep the mind ‘sharp’, regular acupuncture can keep the body attuned to its meridians.

What does acupuncture treat

The list of diseases and conditions for which Acupuncture would be an appropriate treatment is extensive. Acupuncture is a complete medical system in itself, and is also an excellent compliment to almost any other treatment, including Western pharmaceuticals & surgery, herbal therapies, massage or Chiropractic.
Acupuncture is not a cure all, nor an aggressive intervention. It cannot, by itself, cure cancer, for example. It does not cure Autoimmune diseases such as Diabetes or Addison's Disease, or Lupus. If you break a leg, or are in a car accident, we would recommend you go to the local Emergency Room first, but come for Acupuncture treatments afterward for pain and to speed healing.
Acupuncture is, on the other hand, extremely effective, drug free, non-surgical treatment for the serious side effects of Cancer treatments and hormone replacement therapies for Autoimmune Diseases, post-operative pain, PMS and Menopause symptoms.. It should be noted that Acupuncture is not only good if you are sick or damaged. Even if you are not so sick, Acupuncture is good for balancing the body's systems and promoting general resiliency. It is particularly effective at treating emotional disorders such as Phobias, Grief and Anger.
