Acupuncture, which has origins in ancient China, is a form of alternative Holistic medicine. Acupuncturists use thin needles inserted to “acupuncture points” on the human body, of which there are several hundred located along what is known as meridians. Meridians are connected points across the body that affect a specific organ or part of the body. Studies have shown that acupuncture treatments can relieve certain kinds of pain, post-operative nausea and stress. For more information visit the following businesses websites or give them a call.
