What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a Primary health care modality that has flourished in China for at least 2,500 years and is used widely throughout Asia and Europe. It is considered as one of the newest primary health care provision in this country. Acupuncture has grown as both western and oriental physicians, medical researchers, and the public experience it, integrate it in their  health care, and spread it's benefits.

Far more than a technique of inserting tiny threadlike needles along meridian lines of the body, acupuncture's complex system of diagnostic corollaries take into consideration the person as a whole, not just isolated symptoms. Acupuncture is practiced based on discerning the "pattern of disharmony" and treating accordingly. It utilizes other modalities as well, such as herbal medicine and moxibustion, exercise and nutrition.

Acupuncture treats to strengthen the physical condition, prevent disease, control pain, and achieve longevity. The aim as practiced in oriental medicine in general is not necessarily to eliminate or alleviate symptoms.  The objective, rather, is to increase both the ability to function and the quality of life.
