Practitioner: John Shaw
Acupuncture is a form of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) where thin needles are placed in specific points to ease a related ailment.
Acupuncture has been performed for thousands of years and treats a wide variety of illness, musculoskeletal disorders, neurological conditions, and other visceral issues.
There are many acupuncture points throughout the body, situated along the 12 tendinomuscular; 12 divergent; 12 principal; and 8 extraordinary main meridians and Huato channel.
Using the needles, acupuncturists are able to clear blockages in these meridians, restoring the flow of qi and resolving the afflicting condition.
