A powerful, proven medicine.
Acupuncture is one of the oldest medical traditions still in practice, having been developed for the past 2000 years and still growing today. It involves the use of hair-thin, sterile, disposable needles inserted in strategic places on the body to regulate the immune system, lower inflammation, promote blood circulation, and much more.
Before acupuncture treatments, I had difficulty with lung congestion and had shortness of breath on exertion. After just a few treatments, I could feel my lungs expanding more comfortably and found myself much less winded upon exertion. In addition, Paul is so very gentle in both manner and needle placement. He takes the time to listen and to follow through with information, suggestions and recommendations. – LS
Acupuncture is one of many different therapies that make up the medical system which started in China and its neighboring countries. The medical theories developed there present the body as an interconnected whole, and that any single symptom can be explained in relation to the whole body’s state of health (or disease). This gives acupuncture an uncommon trait in modern medicine – the ability to cut across medical disciplines to more quickly get to the root of a problem and find an effective treatment.
Acupuncture is gentle and safe. While modern medicine has made great strides in its ability to treat acute, emergency cases and perform impressive surgical procedures, acupuncture and related East Asian therapies offer a way to alter chronic health problems and bring the body into a state of health and full energy. Because acupuncture does not require taking any chemicals, it is safe to use along with any other therapy. And because the needles are so thin, there is no pain, no recovery time, and little to no risks to its use.
