Your Different Treatment Options

In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), a healthy body is defined as one that maintains a balance between two energetic forces known as yin and yang. These forces are also referred to as Qi (pronounced “chee”). Acupuncture involves inserting thin, sterile needles into some, or many, of the hundreds of acupuncture points in the body in order to regulate and balance these forces in the body.*
