Asian medicine has been around for many thousands of years and acupuncture has been practiced since the Shang Dynasty (more than 3000 years) treating millions of people as the primary form of medical care. Yin and Yang balance is sought in these treatments, which is a difficult concept for westerners to understand. The benefits of this medicine is to go beyond just pain relief. Treatments have a harmonizing effect on your body, mind and spirit. When getting a treatment you are giving yourself permission to let go of that which you don’t need in your life and move to a healthier, more balanced place in life.
