The human body contains precise points from head to toe which correlate with specific physical, emotional, and psychological conditions. Hair-like needles are placed into the skin at these specific points along energy lines called meridians. The needles open up blockage and allow Qi (chi, or energy) to flow freely into these areas so that healing can occur.
Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years to treat the whole range of illness and imbalance including pain relief, imbalance of nerve, hormonal, and immune system function, and the enhancement of well-being. In recent times acupuncture has been modernized to include the application of low-frequency electrical currents connected to the tips of the needles to stimulate the points deeper for faster relief and greater efficacy in certain conditions.
At Mungkala we use non-invasive techniques along with sterilized single use needles. We use moxibustion and cupping along with acupuncture in private rooms with all procedures carefully administered.
