The principles and practices of acupuncture have the test of time behind them. For over 2000 years Acupuncture has proven itself as a primary healthcare system. The original texts still prove to be accurate and invaluable in this complete and complimentary medical system. Acupuncture can also be expanded as an integral part of Oriental Medicine or as an addition to any other primary healthcare system, including your doctor.
In many parts of the world acupuncture is practiced as primary health care because of its ability to help, not only with pain management but, with correcting functional disorders or the way the body functions.
As an integral part of Oriental Medicine, acupuncturists looks at the body differently than conventional western medicine. This is where it has its strength and where it gets its ability to help fill in the gaps that exist in our traditional western medical methods. Where western medicine focuses on structure and outside invaders (like bacteria and viruses), Oriental Medicine focuses on how the body functions. Because of this it has a unique ability to correct the internal environment that allows those outside invaders to have an effect on you.
We are a part of nature and acupuncture follows the natural laws of nature in recreating a state of balance within the body to alleviate discomfort and disease. It is practiced by stimulating specific acupuncture points to cause change within the body and mind. the most common method of stimulating these points is through the insertion of very thin needles into these specific acupuncture points.
Acupuncture has been found to be effective in treating many disorders, including:
- Respiratory disorders,
- Digestive disorders,
- Hormonal imbalances,
- Menstrual and gynecological issues,
- Emotional stress,
- Pain management,
- Smoking cessation,
- Weight management

The needles used in Acupuncture are very thin and when combined with the needling techniques used, it is almost completely painless.
