This very old therapy method is based on the knowledge that the functionality of the internal organs and the musculoskeletal system depend on the "balance of the energy states in the body". Disruptions in these energy states result in disturbances in organ function and subsequently to pain as well. By placing very thin needles in the ear and/or the torso, the energy states are brought back into balance and organ function is restored. Acupuncture is not painful and does not cause any side effects when applied responsibly by qualified practitioners.
Experience demonstrates that the treatment requires a few therapy sessions, each lasting some 20 – 30 minutes. We are graduates of a very extensive curriculum at certified advanced education institutions for traditional Chinese medicine and we carry the additional title, "Acupuncturist". This ensures that your health insurer picks up a portion of your acupuncture treatment costs.
