Acupuncture is a Traditional Chinese Medicine that is based on the philosophy that vital energy flowing through the body nourishes and protects from illness.
Acupuncture originated 5,000 years ago and hinges on the theory that fourteen major energy channels or meridians flow through the body. This vital energy or Qi, travels through the meridians. Any blockage or misdirection in this energy flow is believed to be responsible for many ailments. Qi energy has two aspects: yin and yang – yin representing cold, darkness, night, water, earth and femininity and yang representing hot, light, day, fire, sky and masculinity. In the context of acupuncture, the causation of diseases is described as either an excess or deficiency of yin or yang.

Great experience, I’ve been dealing with shoulder pains for years and nothing I was doing was working, massages, physio, etc. After a couple of treatments, I felt relieved. They were thorough, explained very well the process and how I should be feeling afterwards, and steps I should do afterwards to help with the healing process.
