Acupuncture is one of the oldest forms of medicine in the world and modern research shows that acupuncture is safe and highly effective for treating a wide variety of conditions.
Acupuncture restores health by stimulating the body’s natural healing responses and increasing its resistance to disease. Traditional Chinese acupuncture recognizes that many times aches, pains and other discomforts are only symptoms of a deeper, underlying health problem. Therefore, a comprehensive diagnosis is compiled which takes into account the whole individual rather than simply categorizing symptoms into a disease. The basis of acupuncture is to build the body’s own immune system so that disease will not penetrate the body. Health is improved by correcting imbalances in the body and allowing it to heal itself naturally. Not only does this holistic medicine help in overcoming illness, it restores the body’s vitality and allows us to lead healthier, happier and longer lives.
The World Health Organization also recognizes acupuncture to be effective for over 43 common ailments. Because patients are now seeking natural ways to resolve their health concerns, acupuncture has become the fastest growing form of healthcare today.
