ACUPUNCTURE

A MINIMALLY INVASIVE AND EXTREMELY SAFE PROCEDURE THAT AWAKENS, STRENGTHENS, AND FOCUSES THE BODY’S CAPACITY TO HEAL ITSELF

Over two thousand years ago, Hippocrates (considered by many to be the father of Western medicine) stated: “Natural forces within us are the true healers of disease.” Now in the twenty-first century, scientists all over the world are scrambling to explain how acupuncture works, with varying degrees of success. Though they are discovering bits and pieces of the answer, the bottom line is this: the way that acupuncture works is to enhance, strengthen, and direct these “natural forces”.

Contrary to what you may have heard, acupuncture is NOT a belief system, a religion, superstition, or magic. You don’t need to “believe” in it in order for it to work. Though it seems foreign and mysterious to many Westerners, modern acupuncture is a minimally invasive and extremely safe procedure that stimulates the nervous system and connective tissue in ways that no other intervention can—no medication, therapy, or surgery can do what acupuncture does.
