What Is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture for healing and as preventative medicine

At WellFit Studio, acupuncture is considered an art form as well as a form of healing. When done under the care and expertise of our qualified practitioners you will receive life changing results.

Acupuncture is an ancient medical practice originating in Chinese medicine. It's based on the meridian system, energy pathways through the entire body, also known as Qi. This practice has been tried and tested for thousands of years proving to maintain health, longevity, improvement in fertility and the increase of the overall quality of life. Depending on the condition you are seeking treatment for, hair-thin, sterile needles are inserted at specific acupressure points on the surface of the skin. The scientific and strategic placement of the pins improves energy flow, or Qi, through the body (and if necessary in some cases block energy flow). The best results are seen after a series of visits, with complementing care like diet and exercise.

 Don't let the fear of needles turn you away.  Acupuncture is safe, painless, cost-effective and chemical free. The needles are hair-thin, pin-like, sterile and disposable. Many say they receive a sensation throughout the body and feel quite relaxed during treatment. On its own or complementing other treatments, acupuncture not only heals your symptoms, but gets to the root cause of your issues. It is the best, most effective and natural way to restoring your health.
