Accupuncture-InfoGraphicAcupuncture is an ancient art of healing. It works on the basis of energy channels in our body.  Whenever there is a block, deficiency or excess, it will give pain, discomfort, numbness, etc.  One touch or one needle can relieve the blocks in the energy channels to alleviate the discomfort.

Sri Lanka Acupuncture uses Pulse diagnosis, channel base diagnosis, and element base diagnosis methods to identify the root cause of the disease and treat that, without the use of medical intervention, creating a long term solution.
