Min has been caring for the wellbeing of Northbridge locals for the past 10 years. We spoke with Min to find out more about the ancient tradition of Chinese medicine and the benefits of acupucture.

Acupunture is less about needles and more about energy. When a person is healthy, qi (life enegery) flows freely through a network of channels, called meridians, throughout the body. When these channels are blocked, sickness or pain is the result. Acupuncture can be introduced into your lifestyle, to improve your energy flows.

Acupuncture is the insertion of very fine needles into specific points along meridians to clear blockages and promote the healthy flow of energy. It is a way to stimulate or calm certain nerves, muscles and connective tissue with sterile needles, electricity and magnets. 

Acupuncture treatment has been known to increase deficient body energy and drain excessive body fats. It can improve deficient body conditions like fatigue, sleep problems, body aches, bloating, indigestion, irregular bowel movements, foggy headedness and emotional turmoil.
