Acupuncture Wellness

Acupuncture Wellness: Acupuncture is a needle-based alternative therapy that has been used to help in pain management. In traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture is believed to stimulate the body’s flow of energy or chi, and research suggests that it may improve pain symptoms and quality of life.

It is placing thin, flexible needles into the body at specific points. Used for more than 2,500 years, this therapeutic protocol has become more popular in North America in recent years and is now recognized as a safe and effective treatment for various health concerns.

Traditionally, acupuncture has been thought to regulate the flow of qi/chi/energy and help restore the body’s balance. Acupuncture wellness can stimulate connective tissue, which affects blood circulation, nerves, and the immune system. This is thought to promote homeostasis and self-healing.

It has been used to help manage a range of conditions, such as migraines, infertility, and pain management.
