Acupuncture works with modern medicine
For approximately 3,000 years, acupuncture has been alleviating pain and resolving bodily ailments. This ancient Chinese medicine technique aims to restore the flow of Chi through the body by placing needles in strategic points on the body. By promoting energy flow, acupuncture relieves bodily ailments and stress.
In modern medicine, a trained acupuncturist places sterile, medical-grade needles into problem areas at varying depths. These needles are thought to affect your neurological system by stimulating nerves, enhancing blood flow, and triggering the release of pain-reducing hormones and/or endorphins. Because acupuncture is a relaxing, relatively painless procedure without side effects, it is used and trusted across the world.

Acupuncture is used worldwide for relaxation and to treat a variety of ailments, including:
- Digestive Disorders
