Your consultation will give Margot the insight she needs to help properly alleviate your ailments during the 45-minute session.
Western medicine has long remained unable to explain why pincushions never get sick. With the growing popularity of acupuncture, the answer has become evident. The technique draws on the ancient concept of qi, the life force that flows through the body, and remains a vital 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 eliminating impediments to good health. In 2003, the World Health Organization issued a review of clinical trials that suggested acupuncture may be effective treatment for a range of conditions including headache, 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.
