Acupuncture is based on traditional Oriental medical theories and involves the insertion of metal needles through the skin at certain points on the body in an attempt to relieve pain or improve bodily function. Frequent uses include pain management (e.g. arthritis, back pain, and headaches), neurological conditions, asthma, drug abuse and alcoholism, nausea related to chemotherapy, weight control, smoking, stroke, gastrointestinal disorders, gynecological and obstetric problems, and stress management.



I began to practice meditation every morning after this class. I found out that my life is going to a higher level. The instructor is very patient and warm-hearted. Thank you so much!
