Acupuncture is a health science that is used to successfully treat both pain and dysfunction in the body. Early Chinese physicians discovered there is an energy network traversing just below the surface of the skin, which communicates from the exterior to the internal organs and structures at over 1,000 acupoints on the body.

This energy works in harmony with the body's circulatory, nervous, muscular, digestive, genitourinary, and all other systems of the body. When this vital energy becomes blocked or weakened, an effect in a body system or anatomic location becomes evident. Stimulation of one or a combination of key "acupoints" on the body may restore harmony to the affected area.

Acupuncture, including the use of a needle, laser, acupressure or electrical stimulation is a principle, not a technique. Therefore, there are many ways to stimulate an acupoint. The principle of acupuncture does not change, only the technique.
