Acupuncture is believed to have begun in China as early as 100BC and is a Latin word that literally translates to needle (acu) puncturing (puncture). Acupuncture isn’t only about needles, however. It also involves pressure, heat and sometimes lasers applied to very specific areas of the body that, when activated (or stimulated) can assist in relieving stress, pain, anxiety and many other symptoms associated with illness or injury.
In our lives we know that injuries can occur at work, while playing sports, while horsing around or even while doing mundane activities like walking or sleeping incorrectly. Acupuncture can help relieve pain from the injury, it can help you relax from the stress and worries from work, and it can even help you get better sleep by relieving anxiety from activities in general.
