Acupuncture originated in China at least 2500 years ago and spread to neighbouring Asian countries including Japan, Vietnam, and Korea by about 500 CE, and finally to Europe in the 16th century.
Acupuncture is used to encourage natural healing, improve mood and energy, reduce or relieve pain and improve function of affected areas of the body. It is safe and effective and is often successfully used as an alternative to medications or even surgery.
The acupuncturist is able to influence health and sickness by stimulating certain areas along the meridians in the body. Traditionally these areas or “acupoints” were stimulated by fine, slender needles. Many additional forms of stimulation can be incorporated, including herbs, electricity, and lasers. The purpose of acupuncture is to adjust the vital energy so the proper amount reaches the proper place at the proper time. This helps your body heal itself.
