Acupuncture is an ancient healing practice of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)
It is performed by our massage therapist/acupuncturist John Zi Jian Huang. Fine, sterile needles are placed into specific points along the body’s 14 major meridians (energy pathways) to encourage the flow of energy, or Qi, through the body and to clear any stagnation of energy, or blockages. The belief is that illness and disease are caused by disruption of Qi. Acupuncture works to correct this disruption and promote the body’s own healing.
Acupuncture is used to treat a wide variety of disorders, diseases and pain conditions. It can assist with disease prevention and provide a general sense of health and wellbeing.
Clinical studies have shown that acupuncture can be effective for the following conditions:
- Chronic Fatigue
- Neck Pain
- Period Pain
- Low Back Pain
- Knee Pain
- Shoulder Pain
- Sports Injuries
Acupuncture can be performed in conjunction with massage therapy to enhance benefits or as a primary treatment.
