Did you know that acupuncture is over 2000 years old. It is the use of fine needles to activate points on the body that promote healing, reduce inflammation, help release endorphins, and assist to balance hormone production. The needles used are extremely thin, stainless steel and single use. The points were first discovered through the practice of exercises like Qi Gong and Tai Qi where people could feel the paths that the energy flows in the body. We refer to the paths the energy (qi or chi) flows through as meridians. What started off as a system of trial and error has evolved into a very well studied body of literature. There are numerous studies done on acupuncture’s effectiveness for fertility, pregnancy, women’s health, pain, migraines and countless other areas.
