Acupuncture is a therapeutic method of TCM administered by applying very fine needles in specific points on the body. The method has been used for over 4000 years with its origin in China.
There are many ways to practice Acupuncture. Traditional acupuncture is a very gentle and safe treatment modality. Although needles are involved, it is quite different compared to having an injection or other needle puncturing experiences. Acupuncture uses very fine needle, and it is usually painless. In fact, many clients fall asleep during treatment due to the relaxing effect. Acupuncture is an excellent way to regulate the Qi and restore balance.
The World Health Organization and the National Institute of Health have all officially recognized the value of acupuncture as a treatment modality in many clinical disorders. Today, there are over 60 schools and colleges that offer acupuncture training in North America. The basic training for TCM and acupuncture takes four to five years of fulltime study. Since acupuncture and TCM focuses on balancing the energy, it can treat a dysfunction in a very early stage, before an imbalance becomes an illness.
