Acupuncture is used to assist the body in correcting imbalances. It works based on a system of channels or meridians. Each channel has a series of acupuncture points on the channel and each point has a specific function. If there is blockage or an imbalance within a channel, disease results. Acupuncture works in organizing a combination of points for each individual to unblock the channels and direct the body to maintain an optimal state of wellbeing. It provides a road map for the body toward restoration, harmony and health. Acupuncture needles are solid, sterile, single-use, and disposable.
