Western medicine has long remained unable to explain why pincushions never get sick. With the growing popularity of acupuncture, the answer has become self-evident. The technique draws on the ancient concept of qi, the energy force that flows through the body, and remains a significant part of healthcare in Japan, China, Vietnam, Korea, and other countries. It works by applying small, virtually painless needles to areas of the body where qi likes to hang out, stimulating proper energy flow and helping relieve impediments to good health.
In 2003, the World Health Organization issued a review of clinical trials that suggested acupuncture may be an effective treatment for a range of conditions including headaches, nausea, sprains, and allergies. Even if you already feel as fit as a pincushion, the process can de-stress, invigorate, and boost your overall health.

Eastern medicine emphasizes a theory of interconnectedness. For example, the lungs affect the kidneys, which in turn affect the heart. To this end, the clinic’s range of services works to bring clients’ bodies into balance, without standard medications or excessive seesaws. Acupuncture guides the body’s energy flow into more healthful patterns by inserting fine needles into certain meridian points on the body. This is believed to stimulate the flow of energy and can treat a variety of chronic medical conditions, along with decreasing chronic pain. During cupping treatments, gentle suction coaxes tight muscles into releasing tension and toxins, whereas one-on-one health-coaching sessions help clients learn to live a life that fosters wellness.
