What is Acupuncture?

Healing through acupuncture @ Arogya in Westport, Connecticut.

Acupuncture is an affective form of medical treatment that has evolved into a complete holistic health care system. Practitioners of acupuncture and Chinese Medicine have used this non-invasive healing method to help millions of people around the world.

Acupuncture promotes natural healing ability and it can enhance recuperative immune system, support physical and mental health, and improve overall well-being.

During the initial session a full health history is taken. Very fine needles are inserted into specific points along meridian pathways that traverse the body and correspond with the proper functioning of the organs, musculo-skeletal structure, and internal physiological systems.

Acupuncture guides the body towards homeostasis, where healing takes place on a deep level in a natural and organic manner. Pain and disease are mirrored through the meridians of the body. Acupuncture treatments properly align these meridians and restore them to their original functioning. The result is true balance.
