Having evolved over thousands of years, acupuncture is one of the oldest, continually practiced, medical modalities in the world. A treatment involves the insertion and manipulation of flexible, hair-thin needles at specific points along the body's meridian pathways. These are the channels through which the body's energy is thought to flow. Acupuncture is a safe, effective, and chemical-free way to promote the body's remarkable self-healing abilities. It is used to relieve pain, balance mood, enhance athletic performance, increase fertility, improve overall health and wellness, plus the list goes on and on!
"Let your food be your medicine"
said Hippocrates, the Father of Medicine,
who compiled a list of over four hundred
herbs and their uses. Herbs, spices and
other nutritional substances are the
oldest form of medicine known to man.
While modern or "allopathic" medicine
is barely a century old, the practice
of natural medicine using nature as
a pharmacy can be traced back
through all of the ancient civilizations.
