60 Second Acupuncture
What is acupuncture and how can it benefit our health?
The human body is filled with invisible life-giving energy called ‘qi’. When the qi is flowing well, one experiences health and well-being. When the qi is flowing incorrectly due to a blockage or a deficiency, one becomes ill. The very thin acupuncture needle enters a point of blocked energy, releasing it to flow again. This stimulates healing and promotes relaxation.
Acupuncture is used for:
• Chronic pain (such as headaches, back pain, neck pain)
• Sinus congestion
• Weight loss
Acupuncture is also used successfully for cosmetic purposes, to improve the appearance of the skin.
