What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a holistic, natural method of healing which aims to restore the body to harmony and balance and allow for self-healing. It is based is based on maintaining the free flow of the body’s energy, or qi.
Acupuncture works thru the virtually painless insertion of a few thin needles into specific points along specific pathways in the body based on the meridians. Each pathway is associated with a particular physiological system and internal organ. Through the use of Acupuncture, the practitioner allows qi to flow to areas where it is deficient and away from where it is in excess. When qi is blocked or obstructed in its flow, pain will occur. By correcting the flow of Qi, the body is allowed to heal itself, and optimal health and vitality can be maintained.
