Acupuncture is a part of Chinese Medicine which has has been practiced for over 2000 years.

The insertion of fine needles is used to rebalance the flow of energy, blood and fluids in the body and restore health. Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine is based on the principle of yin and yang. The symbol of yin and yang depicts perfect harmony and balance in the body which promotes natural healing and well being.
