From the perspective of Traditional Chinese Medicine, meridian lines (life energy pathways) running through the body are the energy conduits. Disruption to these energy flows can cause physical, mental and emotional pain. Acupuncture is the practice of inserting very thin needles at certain points along the energy lines to stimulate specific points in the body and restore energy flow.

Acupuncture improves the circulation of nutrients and the balance of energy in the body that can be lost in the treatment of life threatening illness. The results are feelings of relaxation, stress relief and well-being.

Acupuncture can support other therapies offered at Dove House.
