WHAT IS ACUPUNCTURE?
Being a major part of Traditional Chinese Medicine, acupuncture is a holistic treatment that promotes health and well-being through harmonizing energy (Qi) within our body. To correct an imbalance, tiny needles are inserted along specific channels or acupuncture points. A harmonized energy flow restores the body’s natural function. It heals injuries, alleviates pain, and revitalizes your body and mind.

Acupuncture is most well known for alleviating pain. However, its application can extend to all functional ailments including but not limited to:
- Autoimmune diseases, endocrine disorders
- Digestive disorders
- Gynecological conditions (i.e. infertility, postpartum recovery)
