Acupuncture is perhaps the best known of all Complementary or Alternative therapies. This ancient Chinese medical system uses the careful insertion of fine, sterile needles into specific points of the body that control the flow of “Qi” energy.
Traditional Chinese Medicine has a rich history of using herbs to support treatment. Herb plants produce and contain a variety of chemical substances that act upon the body to treat numerous illnesses and to assist bodily functions.
