Acupuncture originates from China and dates back to over 2,500 years. It's based on the premise that the energy in our body flows in a specific pattern and diseases are a result of disruptions in the flow of this energy. Acupuncture is used to correct these imbalances.
What is Acupuncture?
The treatment involves the insertion of special acupuncture needles at strategic locations on your body. These needles are very tiny and are placed strategically to ensure you feel no pain or discomfort.
Acupuncture has quickly become a part of Western medicine and is said to have several benefits.

Acupuncture is used to treat one or more of the following conditions:
- Neck pain
