A style of traditional Chinese Medicine, acupuncture is a treatment technique which involves the stimulation of bodypoints with the use of ultra-thin needles. One of the world’s oldest healing therapies, acupuncture corrects imbalances of the body’s “qi” (pronounced CHee).
This minimally invasive treatment available at our Ridgewood wellness center enhances the natural healing potential of the body. Fine needles are specially placed to dislodge blocked energy, in order to restore the flow of energy and relieve pain. Acupuncture directs the flow of energy back into balance allowing the body to achieve optimal health and well being. Restoring a balance of energy and flow, the organs and immune system work more efficiently, alleviating dysfunction.
