Many illnesses, especially chronic health conditions, are structural, functional, and/or psychological problems.
An evaluation is necessary to determine if the pain is the result of a musculoskeletal injury or part of a systemic problem.
The functional disease(e.g. IBS) does not only cause physical suffering but also has a great impact on people’s quality of life.
Stress, anxiety can also lead to insomnia , and poor health is just one side effect from lack of sleep.

It improves health and stimulates the body’s natural healing mechanisms by stimulating acupressure points/meridians using a fine, sterile needle. Pressure, heat, or electrical stimulation may further enhance the effects. You do not need a physician’s referral to attend acupuncture sessions.
