Acupuncture is part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) which balances the body, mind, and spirit. It is an ancient system of healing and has been continuously refined during its 4500 years history. Today it is widely practiced in the west. Very fine sterile stainless-steel needles are inserted into the body at carefully selected points to stimulate the body’s own healing processes. There is significant scientific data, proving that acupuncture promotes the production of ‘endorphins’ that relieves pain, improves the immune system, and regulates blood flow and hormones. Acupuncture is also anti-inflammatory, anti-spasmodic, and improves your overall feeling of well-being. There is no age limit for this type of treatment and it is painless.
