Prevention is the cure, the cure is prevention. One way to treat the body of any ailments and to keep it in optimal health is with acupuncture. The body has 12 meridians that are associated with the organs of the body. There are specific points that pertain to your organs to activate their own Qi (energy). All organs in the body relate to each other, when one is out of balance this can send other organs also out of balance. Diet, lifestyle and the emotions all influence the organs.
Acupuncture is about activating Qi, this in turns activates and releases more Qi which teaches the body to return to optimal health.
Alex was taught the 'less is best technique' and to never use more than seven needles. The less you use, the more effective the treatment is.
