Acupuncture is the application of very thin, solid, hairlike needles inserted along specific points on the body. The stimulation of these acupuncture points affects both the central and peripheral nervous systems. It triggers the release of the body's internal chemicals such as endorphins and enkephalins, which have pain-relieving and health regulating properties.

It has been used as standard medical care throughout history to help balance the natural energies of the body to live a healthy life free from pain and disease.

Vishal has used acupuncture to treat acute and chronic conditions ranging from pain to more complicated health concerns.
