Thanks to information being so readily available nowadays, Acupuncture has become quite well known. However, some experts say that most people lack proper understanding of traditional oriental practice. When an Asian experiences Western food for the first time, it can be hard for them to appreciate it, and vice versa. However, as they try it more and more, they start to enjoy eating it. It is our hope that you will come to understand how powerful Acupuncture truly is and how it can help you achieve your long-term health goals.
Acupuncture was developed in China about 3,000 years ago. Since then, the practice has expanded out into the Asian countries surrounding it, and recently throughout the rest of the world.

Computers and electronic devices consist of very complicated circuits. Similar to a circuit, there is an invisible path of energy that flows within our body according to Oriental Medicine. We call it a “meridian”. There are 14 meridians in the human body, such as the liver meridian or the kidney meridian.
To stay healthy, blood must continually flow smoothly through the blood vessels. When electronic devices are used in an improper manner, they break. Likewise, if we do not treat our body properly by subjecting it to things such as stress, congenital/acquired factors, an improper diet or a lack of physical activity, pain or various diseases, our body can also begin to break down.
