Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine are used to ease pain and treat many health problems.  Five thousand years of experience and wisdom have evolved into a natural system of examination and treatment that many consider to be the original holistic health care.  

The human body has 20 major meridians or energy channels with approximately 400 different acupuncture points.  Acupuncturists use these points to rebalance energy flow (referred to as Qi and usually pronounced as “chee”) and allow your
body’s natural healing mechanisms to take over.
