What is Traditional Chinese Medicine?
Acupuncture is a popular healing modality that has been successfully used to treat a wide range of health conditions for thousands of years. Acupuncture involves the insertion of fine needles into the body to stimulate the body's self healing mechanisms and restore proper homeostasis; thus improving a person’s sense of well being and the proper functioning of their body.
Acupuncture is commonly used to treat pain, and is very effective at treating pain anywhere in the body. Acupuncture can reduce inflammation and pain in muscles and joints and is known to treat back, neck and shoulder pain, carpel tunnel, knee or elbow pain and speed up healing after an injury.
Acupuncture is less commonly known for its ability to treat internal medical conditions but is an effective alternative to allopathic medicine to treat and/or manage a wide range of illnesses. Issues of the endocrine system, digestive system or immune system all respond successfully to acupuncture treatments.
