Acupuncture involves treating patients by inserting and manipulating acupuncture needles in the body. The treatment may also involve massage and holding of “listening points” of the body. The basis of acupuncture relates to the philosophy that qi (energy) flow proceeds undisturbed leading to complete health. This treatment lifts blockages or too high a flow of qi in the meridians (energy pathways) on the skin and in the body, organs and brain.  The science has been used for healing practice for +/- 300 years. Suction cupping and soft laser may also be used.
