WHAT IS ACUPUNCTURE?
Acupuncture is a component of Traditional Chinese Medicine that was developed over 2000 years ago. It works by balancing the meridians, or energy pathways, of the body. When there is a disturbance in the balanced flow of the vital energy called qi (pronounced chee), symptoms and disease result. Inserting very fine needles or electrically stimulating specific points along the meridians helps to bring the body’s energy into balance, thereby restoring health

HOW DOES ACUPUNCTURE WORK?
Although we do not yet fully understand how acupuncture works, the most current research shows that needles applied to
specific acu points decrease the flow of blood to areas of the brain that process pain and affect mood and cravings. Research also
shows that acupuncture boosts the levels of endorphins, the body’s natural opiates. This explains acupuncture’s remarkable success with pain control. Acupuncture has also been shown to increase the brain chemical serotonin, which affects our feelings of well-being helping all families and making customers have these powerful aromatic essential oils at our local office, we leave you with responsibly sourced, thoroughly tested, high quality essential oil products for healthy and quality living.

Generally the answer is no. Sensations may vary from person to person, visit to visit and point to point. Sometimes there is no sensation
at all. Sometimes there is a feeling of heaviness, a dull aching, or a throbbing sensation. Sometimes there is a sting that quickly goes away or a warm, tingling sensation along the course of the meridian.
