Originating in China more than 2,500 years ago, acupuncture is one of the oldest and most commonly used medical treatments in the world. Hundreds of acupuncture points in the human body are connected by meridians, which conduct energy. This energy regulates our spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical well-being. Disruptions to these pathways are believed to be responsible for disease.
Hair-thin needles are gently inserted at specific points on the body to help balance the Yin and Yang, unblock stagnant energy, and restore health to the body and mind. Millions of Americans have safely received acupuncture for the treatment of a broad spectrum of health conditions including pain relief. Eric's technique is gentle and calming.
