acupuncture information



Chinese and other eastern cultures have been using acupuncture therapy in the treatment and prevention of illness, to manage pain and maintain good health. Until relatively recent times, this common practice in China has been obscure for those of us living in the Western world.

We invite you to explore this healing practice through all the information within A World of Acupuncture, to learn more about what acupuncture is, and how it can benefit the health and well being of you, and your family.

 Did You Know? 

Children can receive acupuncture, and often have excellent results with this respected treatment. In cases where children are uneasy about the needles, an acupuncturist may choose to use acupressure therapy, involving the massage of specific points, versus the placement of needles within them.
