Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine

Offered at Royal Oak and Westshore

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a key component of Traditional Chinese Medicine that involves the insertion of very thin needles through the skin at specific points on the body. This practice is based on the concept of balancing the flow of energy, or Qi (pronounced “chee”), which travels through pathways called meridians. By stimulating these points, acupuncture aims to restore health and well-being.
