Acupuncture is a proven safe and effective therapy that works by rebalancing the energetic system. Every living thing on the planet, down to the smallest cells embody intelligent energy (called qi) which sustains, nourishes, activates, and enlivens the physical body.
According to Chinese Medicine, this energetic life–force flows down specific pathways (called meridians) supporting all structures and organs. Ideally, energy moves freely and circulates continuously from system to sytem, without resistence.
If there is an imbalance or disruption of this free flow, some areas, or even the entire body can become weakened and suseptible to disease. Very fine sterilized needles are gently inserted into specific points along the energetic pathways. By stimulating those points the “qi” becomes regulated and health is restored once again.
