Acupuncture is a component of traditional East Asian medicine that originated in China over 5,000 years ago. It is based on the theory of two complementary forces, Yin & Yang. These forces are interdependent and interconnected.
Living beings have a vital energy, called qi, which circulates via pathways throughout the body. An imbalance or blockage can indicate disease while a complete blockage may cause pain.
Acupuncture helps unblock any impeded pathways, which increases circulation, decreases inflammation, boosts the immune system, and encourages the body's natural healing process.
Elemental Acu offers several different types of acupuncture including Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Tan, Tung, motor point, dry needling, local, and distal. The conditions receiving treatment and patient preference are considered when selecting the appropriate style for each client.
