What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is one of the oldest, most commonly used medical procedures in the world originating in China more than 3,000 years ago. It is one aspect of Traditional Chinese medicine. Acupuncture began to become better known in the North American in 1970’s.
Traditional acupuncture is based on the principle that our health depends on the balanced functioning of the body’s energy. When we are in perfect health all the energy runs harmoniously throughout our body. When an illness arises the flow of energy becomes disturbed and this can manifest in a diverse array of symptoms. Using very fine needles acupuncture aims to correct the flow of energy and by doing this the symptoms and the illness will be resolved.
How safe is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture when practiced by a licensed professional is very safe.  Like most acupuncturists we use sterile, disposable needles.  Oriental medicine is drug free and so avoids the side effects of western pharmaceuticals.
Side effects from acupuncture are rare, but may include:  bruising, drowsiness, light soreness.  All of these are temporary and short lived.
