Acupuncture

Acupuncture has been healing people for over 2500 years. According to the classical doctrines of Chinese medicine, there is an unceasing flow of “life energy” called Qi(pronounced chee) throughout the human body. Qi originates from the major organs and flows along the circulatory channels called meridians. A healthy body has a smooth and balanced Qi. An unhealthy or painful body has a disturbed Qi.

Acupuncture points are on the meridians. The acupuncture needles stimulate the Qi so that healing can occur.

Most patients find the treatment very relaxing. Fine, flexible needles are inserted into the skin with very little, if any, discomfort. At DST, we always use disposable needles so that your health is protected. We  may also use electrical stimulation to increase the effectiveness of the treatment.
