Acupuncture is the stimulation of specific acupuncture points along the skin of the body using thin needles. It can be associated with the application of heat, pressure, or laser light to these same points. Traditional acupuncture involves needle insertion, moxibustion, and cupping therapy. It is a form of alternative medicine and a key component of traditional Chinese medicine.
Acupressure is an alternative medicine technique similar in principle to acupuncture. It is based on the concept of life energy which flows through "meridians" in the body. In treatment, physical pressure is applied to acupuncture points with the aim of clearing blockages in these meridians. Pressure may be applied by hand, by elbow, or with various devices.
Herbal medicine is use of plants for medicinal purposes, and the study of such use. Plants have been the basis for medical treatments through much of human history, and such traditional medicine is still widely practiced today. Modern medicine recognizes herbalism as a form of alternative medicine, as the practice of herbalism is not strictly based on evidence gathered using the scientific method.
Acupuncture is the insertion of very fine, sterile, stainless steel needles into specific points on the body that have a high concentration of neuro-vascular tissue. The insertion of acupuncture needles at these specific points sends a message through the nervous system to normalize physiological function, reduce pain, and stimulate the immune system. Acupuncture has a profound impact on organ function, hormonal levels, circulation, sleep patterns, and energy level.
Acupuncture is one of the oldest known forms of healing, and has been used to diagnose, treat, and prevent disease for over 2,000 years.

Acupuncture originated in China and is now used worldwide as an effective means of overcoming disease.
Needles are sterile, generally cause no bleeding upon entry or removal, with little or no pain being felt; however, slight bruising may be experienced on occasion. The number of treatments necessary will depend upon your condition, if your symptoms are chronic or acute and your health in general. The needles may very in size, depending upon your condition and the course of treatment prescribed. In addition to needling your treatment may also include a variety of non-needling techniques such as moxibustion (heat), acupressure, herbal formulas, etc. One advantage of acupuncture treatment is the absence of serious side effects which may result from the use of prescription drugs.
