Acupuncture is an ancient tradition of holistic medicine, and has been used for thousands of years. Acupuncture treats with the intention to rebalance the flow of energy, or Qi, throughout the body efficiently to trigger the body’s own innate healing. Acupuncture encourages proper functioning of the mind and body to allow the body to return to a state of health. Acupuncture and Chinese can be very effective at treating conditions that do not typically see success through Western Medical therapies such as unexplained infertility, anxiety, depression, chronic fatigue, digestive disorders, dysmenorrhea and irregular cycles.
