"The universe is not outside of you.
Look inside yourself; everything that you want, you already are."
― Jalaluddin Mevlana Rumi
Acupuncture treats your body, mind and spirit as a whole.
It has been traditionally used for over 3,000 years to help properly re-circulate energy along pathways in the body called meridians. When circulation of this energy called Qi is blocked, the result is pain or illness on a physical, emotional or spiritual level.
Acupuncture is the use of very thin, stainless-steel needles to help facilitate wellness by specifically targeting insertion points on the body. By strategically placing the needles, the practitioner is able to stimulate key energy points that regulate physical, mental and emotional balance.
The modern scientific explanation for acupuncture’s effectiveness is that it stimulates the body’s nervous, circulatory and immune systems. This stimulation prompts the release of naturally occurring chemicals in the body that promote healing, as well as endorphins and serotonin, which naturally reduce pain and positively affect one’s mood.
