Relaxing, safe and effective medicine
Acupuncture is perhaps the most well known branch of Chinese medicine in America today. An acupuncture session typically involves the insertion of sterile, hair-thin needles at physically significant points in the body. Inserting acupuncture needles stimulates specific physiological processes in the body. Modern research has shown what has been known by Chinese medicine practitioners for thousands of years, that points are energetically connected to specific organs, body structures and systems. If this energy circulation is disrupted, optimum function of the entire body is affected and this results in pain or illness. The energy circulation needs to be in balance in order to maintain optimal health.
Acupuncture is safe, natural and effective. It has been utilized for thousands of years and is the fastest growing health care method in America. This is due, in part, to the fact that it has very few, if any adverse side effects! The potential benefits of acupuncture are widely recognized and it is steadily being integrated with western health care. Today, more than 15 million Americans have tried acupuncture and Asian medicine since it was introduced in the United States in the 1970s.
