Acupuncture is a form of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), one of the oldest systems of medicine dating back 4,000 years. It is a practice or procedure that treats illness and provides local anesthesia by the insertion of needles at specified sites of the body. TCM stems from the belief that what happens to one part of the body affects every other part of the body and is the most commonly used system of healing in the world.
TCM acknowledges that true healing is a multidimensional process. This ancient holistic medical system, understands that the body, mind, spirit and emotions must all be addressed in the healing journey. The mind and the emotions play a dominant role in creating wellness or illness and attracting disease.
Acupuncture uses time-tested theories to understand, diagnose and effectively treat health problems and conditions and has been in continuous practice for thousands of years.
