What does acupuncture treat?

Acupuncture has been developed to assist your body in achieving a Yin/Yang balance. It restores that harmony by assisting the vital organs in one of their most important functions, detoxifying the body and the main balance we strive to achieve between Yin/Yang. The original meaning of yin and yang are simple, mainly referring to facing towards (yang) and away from the sunshine (yin). Yang means warmth, day, upper, right, outer and activeness. Yin is the opposite cold, night, lower, left, inner and rest. Yin/Yang are opposites but they can not exist without each other.
