Acupuncture, Traditional Chinese Medicine has been used as an excellent healing modality for thousands of years. It is the oldest, continually practiced medicine in the world today; and is one of the newest primary health care professions in the United States. Acupuncture is effective because the aim is not merely to eliminate the symptoms, but rather to treat the underlying cause. Acupuncture treatments can be used along with other medical care to great advantage. Traditional Chinese Medicine is a comprehensive healing system that encompasses the whole person – Body, Mind and Spirit.
