WHAT IS 
ACUPUNCTURE?

Acupuncture is the oldest practiced medical system in the world, and is used by 1/3 of the world’s population as a primary health care system. Extremely fine, hair-thin needles are placed at specific acupunc- ture points on the body. When the needles are inserted, the client may experience a sensation of warmth or tingling. Most people are surprised to find treatments quite relaxing. The length and frequency of a treatment may vary for each individual.

    Because of its relatively low cost and its non-invasive nature, acupuncture has become a highly popular form of complementary health care

in the United States.
