Following traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture uses acupuncture bells to stimulate the body’s acupoints. These acupuncture points are connected to form a network, which is also called the energy flow in the meridian, called “qi”. It is believed that stimulating these acupoints can treat and prevent diseases and pain, allowing Qi (energy) to flow freely through the body. Gentle electrical pulses are used together with the needle to maximize the benefits, thereby creating a soothing “tingling” sensation, which makes many patients feel relaxed. Acupuncture has the effects of reconciling qi and blood, balancing yin and yang, regulating viscera, replenishing deficiency and exuding excess, improving immunity and dredging the meridians.
The diseases we usually treat with acupuncture are: low back pain, arthritis and joint pain, neck pain, muscle tension, premenstrual symptoms, stress relief, repeated tension headaches and migraines.
