Acupuncture Q&A

Please Pre-Register @ Customer Service

Have you ever wondered what it might be like to try acupuncture or why you might benefit from it? Acupuncture can be traced back at least 2,500 years and the general theory is based on the premise that there are patterns of energy flow (Qi) through the body that are essential for health. Disruptions of this flow are believed to cause disease and acupuncture is theorized to correct the imbalance. Join Dr. Andrew for an interesting lecture and Q&A session on this ancient practice.
