Acupuncture is an age-old healing practice in which thin needles are strategically placed on various parts of the body to treat specific ailments.

This ancient Chinese philosophy is based on the philosophy that the needle insertion creates tiny injury sites that signal the body’s immune system to respond.

There can be several reasons why this treatment is performed, but the most common ones include wound healing and pain modulation. The treatment seeks to release the flow of the body’s vital energy or “chi” by stimulating points along various energy pathways. It improves the body’s inner workings and promotes circulation.
