Acupuncture can relieve pain and improve healing and general well-being by inserting fine needles at specific points in the body.

Acupuncture is a scientifically proven safe and effective method of pain management and soft tissue and joint healing. It is based on philosophies of Traditional Chinese medicine, around the idea that a vital life energy (Chi) consisting of Yin and Yang flows through the five elements (fire, earth, metal, water and wood) that make up all human life forms. In sickness or injury the normal flow of energy is obstructed leading to deficiencies or excesses of energy.
