Acupuncture by the Wellness Source Successfully Treats Summer Sports Injuries

San Diego, CA -- (SBWire) -- 07/30/2012 --Acupuncture has been a part of Chinese, Japanese, and Korean culture for thousands of years. It is a practice that uses extremely thin, pre-sterilized, disposable needles on specific areas of the body. In order to treat and prevent diseases; mental, emotional, and spiritual disorders, as well as relieve pain and increase general health.
