Sterile, disposable, hair-thin needles are inserted at specific locations throughout the body to resolve imbalances and restore health.

Special herbs are burned at various points on the body, either on the head of the needle or with a moxa pole, to further stimulate and support the energy in that area.

Small electrodes are attached to acupuncture needles to provide gentle stimulation to particular acupuncture points (similar to a TENS machine).
