Acupuncture is the Art of inserting thin sterile needles into specific body points to improve health and Well-being. It originated in China more than 2,000 years ago, using the 5 Element Theory and the Yin-Yang principles to restore the balance in the Unity of Body Mind and Spirit.
Research has proven that activating the Meridians (the energy pathways in the body), various glands in the body secrete Hormones more efficiently, which results in faster repair of Tissues, decrease in pain and a state of re- laxation.
Acupuncture can effectively treat:
- Menstrual Pain
- Back Pain
- Neck and Shoulder pain
- Improves Blood Circulation
- Strengthens the Immune System
- Increases performance and Well-being
If all this talk about needles is making you squirm, there is an alternative; acupuncture points can also be effectively stimulated with a low energy laser beam that is harmless and painless. Many clinical acupuncturists use a laser, which is a modern Western modification.
Laser has the distinct advantage of being able to treat children, and those with needle phobia. They have several other advantages:
- Speeding up the healing of injured tissues e.g. ulcers and fever blisters, following injury or surgery.
- Stimulating circulation.
- Reducing inflammation.
- Stimulating new cell growth
