Acupuncture is a pillar of Traditional Chinese Medicine. This technique uses thin needles inserted into the body’s meridians to redirect, harmonize and stimulate energy flow. The art and science of Acupuncture is selecting an exact collection of points to address your qi disruption. However, it is not only limited to energetic benefits but also has a direct affect on muscle tissue tension, blood circulation and collagen production. There is a mounting body of research that reveals acupuncture’s efficacy in pain alleviation, headaches, menstrual and fertility treatments, insomnia and stress management.
As a practitioner with extensive manual experience, I believe that physical therapies are an important part of treating the physical body. My experience performing acupuncture on and overseeing patients at The Guangzhou Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine in southern China solidified acupuncture as an integral part of my medicine bag.
