Acupuncture

 

Acupuncture is a highly evolved system that utilized very fine and thin, hair-like needles to stimulate the bodies own ability to heal rapidly. It involves little to no pain. It utilizes a complex map of the human body consisting of channels and meridians that make up the point locations that are to be needled.

Needles placed at precise locations promote the body’s own natural healing providing a tremendous amount of relief.  

 

Acupuncture has been used in China and other Asian countries for thousands of years. Originally it was a practice that was reserved only for the elite – the Emperor and the members of his Kingdom. It was renowned for its ability to create longevity and sexual vigor. Hence it’s ability to extend an athlete’s career, or even the life of a CEO under an unbearable amount of stress. Everyone can benefit from Acupuncture. With regard to sexual vigor it is an excellent adjunct to infertility and a plethora of sexual dysfunctions.  

 

Thanks to the astute wisdom of Ancient Sages  … this information was written down and later translated and shared.  Gratefully we are able to practice the Emperor’s medicine here in the West!
