Acupuncture 

Acupuncture is a traditional Oriental Medical Therapy using very fine and thin stainless steel needles into the body at specific points, which have been empirically proven effective in the treatment of specific disorders. These points have been mapped out by the East over a period of 5,000 years.

 

Recently, these locations were confirmed by electromagnetic research. Acupuncture, thru needling, can stimulate the body and activate the regulating functions of the body to improve and rectify the disturbance and dysfunction of certain organs in the body. It not only can treat disease but also prevent disease. It is noted for extensive application, significant curative effects.
