Traditional and Distal Acupuncture

Acupuncture is one of the many modalities within Traditional Chinese Medicine.  It involves inserting extremely fine, sterile, single use needles into the body at specific points.  These locations have demonstrated to be effective for the treatment of specific health issues.

Distal acupuncture involves inserting needles away from the effected areas, going distant/distal from the injured site as opposed to needling the target area locally.
