Traditional Chinese medicine
Have you noticed how our internal and external environments both have an impact on our body? Ancient Chinese have figured out a way to bring and restore balance and promote healing, by taking into consideration both the internal and external influential factors.
The use of Acupuncture dates back roughly 3000 years ago. Its popularity is growing rapidly in North America as this ancient healing modality can be used to prevent and improve a wide range of conditions.
By inserting fine disposable needles into various acupuncture points throughout the body, an underlying root cause of many ailments may be corrected. Acupuncture is aimed to relieve obstructions of our Vital Energy flow (also known as Qi).
