How does this work? Acupuncture needles are utilized at points along the body’s meridian system, an invisible electro-magnetic circuitry which moves Qi ( the generator of all internal energy and heat) and Blood (the fluid that bathes our internal organs and provides nourishment to our system) throughout our entire system. The points used, tap into your body’s innate capacity to heal. Acupuncture treatment promotes internal flow of Qi and Blood where it may be congested or deficient. Acupuncture can support the reduction of inflammation, and can have an analgesic effect on pain. Ultimately, acupuncture gives you a deep experience of rest and restoration, providing you with an experience of the possibility of change.

Acupuncture has been utilized for thousands of years in Asia and has seen rapid acceptance in the west. It is most widely known for its positive impact on the reduction of many types of pain issues, however its benefits are far reaching – reducing the negative impacts of stress, reducing anxiety and helping with depression, as well as a strong support for anyone dealing with a chronic health problem.
