Acupuncture is the practice of inserting thin, sterile, single-use, ﬁliform needles into the skin at over 360 points on the body as well as at areas of tenderness. Acupuncture has a regulating affect and works by stimulating the body's own resources and natural metabolic function to promote health and restore balance.
Herbal constituents include plant, mineral, animal, and insect material. Just like the food we eat and the water we drink, herbs provide speciﬁc actions and beneﬁts within the body. Herbal therapies provide an opportunity for the practitioner to treat patients on a daily basis, as each dose is a treatment.
