It is a branch of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) that involves the application of slim, one-time-use needles to specific areas, called acupoints.

Acupuncture has proven beneficial in relieving acute and chronic pain, digestive disorders, fatigue, migraines, anxiety and stress, insomnia, asthma and seasonal allergies, neurological problems, morning sickness and much more.

HOI also provides related services like auricular acupuncture, electro-acupuncture, bodywork, cupping therapy, dietary therapy and nutrition, and lifestyle counseling to support pain relief and overall wellness:
