What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture, the ancient medical art, is considered a" New alternative" medicine in today's western culture. In reality acupuncture and its related moxibustion, are medical treatments that have been practiced for more than 5,000 years. So, what is acupuncture? Simply, acupuncture is the insertion of very fine needles under the skin in order to influence physiological functioning of the body. Sometimes, electrical stimulus is applied to the needles. Acupuncture is based on the theory that there is energy, called Chi or qi, flowing through the body. Chi is thought to flow along energy pathways called meridians. Chinese medical practitioners believe a blocking or imbalance of the flow of Chi at any point on a pathway may result in illness. They believe acupuncture unblocks and rebalances the flow of Chi to restore health. Over the last few decades, research has been conducted seeking to explain how acupuncture works and what it can and cannot treat.
WHAT OUR PATIENT SAYS
This is one of my favorite ways to relax my mind or repair my body for sports related soreness. Michelle is a wonderful acupuncturist who is extremely attentive and responsive to her clients needs. I always look forward to the next visit.
I am being treated by Michelle for the last month and the change has been remarkable. She has pinned down my problems and I feel so much better now. She is very professional and kind, starts each treatment with caring questions, and always seems to greet everyone with a smile. I would heartily recommend her to cure whatever is ailing you. I think if she couldn't help, she'd let you know. Thank you Michelle for your easygoing demeanor and great touch.
My wife has been seeing Michelle for prenatal and postpartum help and all has been going great!
