Acupuncture has been practiced in China for the last three thousand years. The general theory of Acupuncture is based on the premise that through the body, there are patterns of energy flow, called Qi, that are essential for health. This means that any dis-ease is considered to emanate from an imbalance of Qi. Acupuncture, by improving and balancing the energy(Qi), stimulates the body's natural healing abilities, relieves many physical ailments, promotes physical and emotional well-being, and assists with lifestyle changes. Acupuncture is a safe, painless, and effective.
