In biomedical terms, acupuncture has been shown to produce a number of effects. Acupuncture treatment releases endorphins, boosts the parasympathetic nervous system, enhances the immune system, and causes a number of other biochemical and hormonal changes. Acupuncture can also release painful trigger points in muscles and effect nervous system regulation of muscle and organ function.
The ancient Chinese conceptualized health as a vital energy behind all life forms and processes. They called this energy Qi (pronounced chee) and discovered many practices to cultivate health, treat dysfunction and disease, and balance the emotions. Acupuncture is a time proven and safe method to optimize health.
In our clinic we strive to use the best of what modern and traditional healing practices have to offer.
