With over 2,000 years of history, acupuncture has been used to help treat a wide variety of conditions including but not limited to chronic pain, infertility, headaches, joint pain, fatigue, insomnia, GI disorders, and anxiety. In the view of Traditional Chinese Medicine, an energy or life force called Qi flows through the body along 14 main channels. When proper Qi flow becomes impeded, the body may become sick. The goal of acupuncture is to restore proper Qi flow by inserting thin, sterile needles at specific points along the channels running through the body. Although the concept of Qi is not fully understand in Western Medicine, recent research studies have show that acupuncture can regulate the balance of the body by improving nervous flow, regulating hormone release, and activating our immune system.
