Acupuncture for the Florida Keys and South Florida

Acupuncture  is an alternative medicine practice originating in ancient China that treats patients by manipulating thin, solid needles which have been inserted into acupuncture points in the skin. A key component of Traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture is most commonly used to treat pain but can be used to treat a wide variety of disorders. 


In Chinese medicine, it’s thought that energy, called chi (pronounced “chee”), flows through and around your body along pathways called meridians. Illness or disorder occurs when something blocks or unbalances your chi. Acupuncture is a way to unblock or influence chi and help it flow back into balance.

An acupuncturist will look for the places points) on your body along these meridians to access the chi that is blocked or not flowing right. Each of the points relates to certain health problems or body functions. The acupuncture needles are inserted into those points to achieve the healing effect.
