Acupuncture is therapy developed by the ancient Chinese that uses needles, application of heat, or finger pressure, or a combination, to stimulate various points on the skin.  The stimulation of these points encourages the flow of energy in the body along meridians (or channels) which in turn can affect us physically, mentally and spiritually.  Because acupuncture has a balancing effect on the body, it is useful for drug, alcohol and even nicotine detoxification.  It helps calm the emotions and reduces cravings.  It also is helpful against the symptoms of withdrawal.  
La acupuntura es una terapia desarrollada por los antinguos Chinos que usaban agujas, aplicaban calor, o presionaban el dedo (o combinacion de todo esto) para estimular varios puntos de la piel.  El estimulo de estos puntos anima el fluir de la energia en el cuerpo a lo largo de meridianos (o canales) que a su vez pueden afectarnos fisicamente, mental y espiritualmente.  Debido a que la acupunctura tiene un efecto balanceador en el cuerpo, es util para la desentoxicacion del alcohol, las drogas, y la nicotina.  Ayuda a calamr las emociones y reducer el deseo intenso de drogas.  Ayuda tambien a combater los sintomas de retirada de las drogas y el alcohol.
