Inserting the fine sterile filiform needles act as a conduit by restoring the natural flow of energy within these pathways, therefore, enabling the patient’s own healing abilities.Chinese Medicine, also referred to as Asian/Eastern medicine, is a comprehensive medical system, thousands of years old, which focuses on balancing the whole body to obtain harmonious mental, physical, and emotional well being. This system treats a multitude of conditions, using a variety of modalities to assess, treat, and provide prognosis. Such techniques include, but are not limited to, acupuncture, herbal medicine, dietary therapy, and asian bodywork therapy.
