Traditional Chinese Healing
Acupuncture is a form of ancient Chinese medicine, which stimulates and restores the flow of natural energy. It can help with both physical and mental well-being. The patient sits or lies down while the therapist inserts very fine needles into the skin at specific points on the body. It can be a relaxing and pleasurable experience.
