Acupuncture involves the insertion of hair-thin needles into specific points on your body. These points are located on intermuscular or intramuscular connective tissue, a network that is connected to organs, nerves, blood vessels, and lymphatics.
In essence, acupuncture stimulates the body to activate its own healing mechanisms and restore balance.
Treatments may include other modalities such as: herbal medicine, cupping therapy, moxibustion, lifestyle and nutritional counseling.
Here are some common conditions acupuncture can treat:
- hormonal issues
- digestive complaints
- emotional /psychological disorders
- weight gain
- flu / cold / virus etc
