About Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a form of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Trained professionals use disposable thin metal needles to stimulate specific points on the body. The fundamental principles of acupuncture are to treat the person as an integrated whole in body, mind, and spirit, and to remedy the root causes of illness and disease, not only the symptoms. Acupuncture has been used for thousand years in the treatment of disease and injury. It is also as well as for preventive care.

Acupuncture has been endorsed by the World Health Organization (WHO) of the United Nations and the National Institutes of Health.
