Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese therapeutic technique. It is done by introducing wire thin needles into specific point of the body. It has now become very famous in Europe and Asia too. Acupuncture uses very fine needles to excite specific points located on the body, in order to affect the Qi of the body.

Stimulating acupuncture points results in both the local area being needled and other, remote areas of the body to be stimulated. Acupuncture and moxibustion can be exercised as precludive medicine, as treatment for acute injuries and illnesses, and for treatment or palliation of chronic illness or pain.

Acupuncture works by balancing the body's positive and negative forces (yang and yin), that become unbalanced due to diseases and pain.

Stroke is the third major cause of death in this country. Someone suffers a stroke every 53 seconds. Acupuncture can help speed up the therapeutic process for stroke victims. Acupuncture treatment for low back pain is commonly rather straightforward and the situation responds extremely well to acupuncture, Chinese formulas, herbs and herbal plasters.

Arthritis is a condition that causes pain, stiffness and swelling in and around joints. There are more than 100 various types of arthritis, and each type is featurised by joint and musculoskeletal pain, often the result of inflammation of the joint lining. Arthritis strikes hundreds of millions of people across the globe. Acupuncture palliates pain and improves movement for patients suffering from it, whether it is arthritis of the knee, hip, shoulder, hand or back.

The effectiveness appeals to both rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and osteoarthritis (OA) conditions. Acupuncture and Chinese herbs are very helpful for headaches, and patients generally feel frequent relief after therapy. Regular treatment precludes future onset of headaches. Constipation and diarrhea, while very public, are two of the least discussed physical complaints.

The effects of irregular bowel movements are generally poor food absorption, fatigue, livid complexion, frequent break-outs, pain in the lower abdomen, upset in appetite and weight control, and more. Regular acupuncture combined with Chinese herbs can have a positive consequence on gastrointestinal motility. The treatment will either be used to slacken a more spastic colon or to stimulate peristalsis.
