The Wellness Studio offers clients accupuncture as complementary and alternative safe treatments for healing and pain relief. Consider making an acupuncture appointment at our Ambler office.
Acupuncture is among the oldest healing practices in the world. As part of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), acupuncture aims to restore and maintain health through the stimulation of specific points on the body. Our accupuncture practices involve penetrating the patient's skin with thin, solid, metallic needles that are manipulated by the hands or by electrical stimulation.
Traditional Chinese theory explains acupuncture as a technique for balancing the flow of energy or life force — known as qi or chi (chee) — believed to flow through pathways in your body. By inserting needles into specific points along these meridians, acupuncture practitioners believe that your energy flow will re-balance.
Western practitioners view the acupuncture points as places to stimulate nerves, muscles and connective tissue. This stimulation appears to boost the activity of your body's natural painkillers and increase blood flow.
