"For more than 2,000 years, acupuncture has been practiced to treat pain, maintain health and promote healing by stimulating points on the body."
A growing body of scientific evidence supports use as a treatment for pain and nausea, and as a complement to modern evidence-based medicine. At Activ8, acupuncture is a significant point of expression for our holistic wellness approach incorporating complementary and alternative medicine (CAM). We believe that acupuncture helps to unify the body and create balance, enhancing everything from digestion to energy levels.
We understand that energy (qi) meridians maps in traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) do not correspond with physical structures of the human body and that the theory is not described in scientific terms. We accept the ancient theories as useful models and metaphors to access natural healing energies not yet well defined by Science.
Acupuncture uses individually sterilized and packaged needles with practiced skill in a calm and caring environment. Though acupuncture can sometimes be uncomfortable, they take every precaution to ensure a safe, positive and effective experience.
