The ancient practice of Acupuncture is a modality integrated with Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). The basis of Chinese philosophy and acupuncture theory is holistic, and acknowledges the existence of a primary energetic force behind all life and the relationship between the individual and environment. Specific diagnostic tools such as Tongue, Pulse Diagnosis and Hara diagnosis (abdominal palpation) are used to assess an individual's overall health and treatment needs.

Acupuncture can be used to treat a variety of health conditions and was originally used on ancient China to prevent illness. Some conditions which may respond well to acupuncture include:
