Acupuncture is a branch of Traditional Chinese Medicine, used for thousands of years by many Asian cultures. It works by moving qi (“chee”),also known as human energy, around the body to create balance and remove stagnation. Using Traditional Chinese Medicine theories and techniques we can assess, diagnose and treat many different conditions, from physical pain, emotional stresses to the common cold.
