Acupuncture promotes natural healing by stimulating the body's own healing mechanisms to fight disease and ease pain. Acupuncture is extremely safe; the needles are sterile, disposable and never reused. The needles used are very thin, about the diameter of a thick piece of human hair. This wonderful relaxing therapy can help with many types of health problems including, but not limited to: Painful conditions, Gynecological Disorders, Additions, Mental/Emotional Disorders, Gastrointestinal Disorders and Circulatory Disorders. The practitioner may incorporate electro-stim on the needles, moxabustion, cupping and liniments depending on the condition being treated.
