Acupuncture is a safe and effective natural therapy that is used to treat a variety of conditions and improve overall well-being.
While this practice has been growing in popularity recently, it has a long history of helping to control pain and regulate the body while treating internal dysfunctions and disorders.
The History of Acupuncture
It might seem like a recent phenomenon, but acupuncture is actually one of the oldest and most commonly used medical procedures in the world. It is a key component of traditional Chinese medicine that originated in China over 4,000 years ago.
How Does Acupuncture Help?
The intent of acupuncture is to promote health and alleviate pain and suffering. Acupuncture uses fine, single-use, sterile needles to stimulate areas along specific channels of the body. There are over 500 specific points located on our body. Each acupuncture point elicits a different response to our nervous system, endocrine system, hormonal system, and vascular system.
