• How Acupuncture Works


    What It Is

    Acupuncture is one of the many forms of medicine practiced in China over the past 2000 years. The method of treatment focuses on restoring a balanced flow of Qi in all of the body’s channels, which results in heath and well-being.

    Like Chinese herbal medicine, acupuncture starts with our acupuncturist, J. Hadyn Peacock, completing a diagnosis and treatment plan suited to your unique needs. Based on this plan, very whisker-thin, sterile needles are placed on points in specific channels to remove the blockages and Qi imbalances.
