Acupuncture is one of the oldest forms of physical therapy. It has a history of over 3 000 years and promotes the flow of Qi in harmony. Acupuncture points lie along the Meridians (routes) as they are running around the body.
Scientific research from the West shows there is evidence that acupuncture stimulates the production of endorphins and serotonin, which produces analgesic effects.
Acute pain is a result of a pathology, for example, a sprained neck, back or ankle. The use of manual techniques and modalities, like acupuncture, IFC, laser, TENS, and ultrasound can treat the cause of the problem as well as restoring bodily functions and prevent chronic pain.
