About Windy     

As early as 1979 the World Health Organization compiled a list of 104 conditions that acupuncture can treat, including migraine, asthma, addictions, gastrointestinal disorders, osteoarthritis , and paralysis. The National Institute of Health (NIH) consensus Conference on Acupuncture in 1997 stated, "The data in support of acupuncture are as strong as those for many accepted Western medical therapies. One of the advantages of acupuncture is that the incidence of adverse effects is substantially lower than that of many drugs and other accepted medical procedures used for the same conditions."

To treat a patient, the acupuncturist uses hair- thin needles to stimulate special points on the body, which are carefully chosen based on the appropriate TCM diagnosis. The needling is mostly pain free when it is done with skill. When the needle activates the energy in the meridians, the patient  may feel tingling, heaviness, or warmth around the point  being needled.
