Acupuncture is a medical model that is well over two thousand years old.  It is an alchemy of art and science. Acupuncture involves the insertion of very fine needles into the body at very specific points which have been shown to be effective in the treatment of specific health issues. These points are areas where energy, qi, (pronounced chee), pools along channels, or meridians, which have been mapped on the human body.There are more than a thousand known acupoints. Over the past few decades electromagnetic research has confirmed the existence and location of such points.

The Human Body is an amazing machine. There are numerous mechanisms within the body which assist it in "righting" itself or bringing it back to a homeostatic way of being.

Having stated that, in this incredibly fast-paced, stress-filled world, where people are living lives on "overdrive", there are numerous factors, or "stressors", which contribute to pushing people away from a place of balance or homeostasis. When these influences, or "stressors", continue over time, it can lead to "dis"-order or "dis"-ease. Thus creating a cycle which requires being broken. There are numerous ways in which the cycle can be broken. Two potential ways are through the use of acupuncture and therapeutic massage. These are two non-invasive and profoundly effective ways of nudging the body and "re"-minding it of its natural balanced state and how to return there. Chinese Medicine, a model almost three thousand years old, operates on the premise that "nothing occurrs in a vacume", it addresses the human being as an entire entity. Often patients come away from this treatment with beautiful side affects such as; increased energy, better sleep, and a profoundly improved over all sense of well being.
