Acupuncture seeks to restore the harmony between mind, body, and our emotions.
Acupuncture is perhaps best known for its role with pain control but there is much more to Traditional Acupuncture than just pain relief.
Traditional Acupuncture is based on a holistic approach to medicine where the mind and emotions are equally as important in governing ones general health.
In the past people were somewhat sceptical of Acupuncture, they generally saw it as the last resort when all else had failed. Those days have changed and today many private medical insurers include acupuncture as part of their second line treatments.
