Acupuncture is an ancient holistic medical practice that originated more than 5,000 years ago. Acupuncture releases blocked energy channels throughout the body, resulting in free energy flow through the lines known as meridians within the body. Each meridian is associated with a different organ system. When an acupuncture needle is placed at one of these meridians, it increases the energy to the organ. The improved energy and biochemical balance produced by acupuncture results in stimulating the body's natural healing abilities, and in promoting physical and emotional well-being.
Acupuncture is useful in resolving physical problems related to tension, stress and emotional conditions. Acupuncture has been found to be beneficial for:
• Gastritis and hyperacidity, spastic colon, constipation, diarrhea.
• Sinusitis, bronchitis, asthma, recurrent chest infections.
• Headaches, facial tics, neck pain, frozen shoulder, tennis elbow, tendonitis, low back pain, sciatica, osteoarthritis.
• Urinary, menstrual, and reproductive problems.
