Acupuncture

An ancient healing art and sophisticated medical science that originated in China about 5000 years ago. It believes that a vital energy or life force known as Qi circulates around our body through some routes called meridians. There are 14 Meridians and each one is connected with a specific organ. For example: lung meridian, heart meridian, etc.

If the flow of the life force is disturbed, resulting in deficiency, excess or stagnation of Qi, illness and malfunction if our body occurs. By inserting the needles at certain points along the meridians, the vital Qi is regulated, balanced or restored and helps return the body to its harmony and health.
