Traditional Acupuncture as been used in China for over 3000 years. The intent of acupuncture therapy is to promote health and alleviate pain and suffering. Acupuncture involves the insertion of very thin needles through the patient's skin at specific points on the body - the needles are inserted to various depths. Acupuncture treatments are usually painless. Even where there is blockage it is far less painful than say plucking out a hair. Subsequent sensations can include mild tingling, slight numbness, very dul achiness, or electrical pulsations in areas distant from the site of insertion. Acupuncture is just one form of therapy used within the coherent system of healing known as Oriental Medicine. Oriental Medicine includes herbology, physical therapy, dietetics and special exercises (such as Tai Chi and Qi Gong), and is a complete medical system unto itself and is not another branch of modern Western medicine. Acupuncture evolved from principles and philosophies unique to Oriental thinking and Oriental Medicine, and is most effectively applied when done in accordance with those principles.


Acupressure is a traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) technique based on the same ideas as acupuncture. Acupressure involves placing physical pressure by hand, elbow, or with the aid of various devices on different acupuncture points on the surface of the body. The points used may or may not be in the same area of the body as the targeted symptom. The TCM theory for the selection of such points and their effectiveness is that they work by stimulating the meridian system to bring about relief by rebalancing yin, yang and qi.

TCM practitioners typically use acupuncture and herbs to help unblock you Qi and bring your body back into harmony and wellness. At the heart of TCM is the tenet that the root cause of illnesses, not their symptoms, must be treated. In modern-day terms. TCM is holistic in its approach; it views every aspect of a personal body, mind, spirit, and emotional as part of one complete circle rather than loosely connected pieces to be treated individually. TCM consists of: herbal therapy, acupuncture, dietary therapy, exercise, and lifestyle management
