At the core of acupuncture is the concept of Qi, or vital energy, which protects the body from illness, pain, and disease. Qi flows through the body in pathways called Meridians that are connected to specific organs and glands. We access the Qi at acupuncture points along the meridians to increase or decrease the flow at that point. Blood and Body Fluid is what nourishes your organs and tissues; a person’s health is influenced by the quality, quantity and balance of all of these vital substances. If they are out of balance or restricted, illness, injury and symptoms can result.
How it works
Acupuncture is the insertion of very thin sterile, one time use only needles at acupuncture points to tonify or sedate the Qi at that point. A typical treatment can consist of up to 20 acupuncture needles all over the body. With well over 700 acupuncture points on the body to choose from, every treatment is tailored to the individual.
Acupuncture excels at, but is not limited to the prevention of pathologies as well as the drugless relief of presenting symptoms from a vast range of acute and chronic problems. Some include immune and autoimmune disorders, stress, migraine, headache, sleep disorders, cold/flu, arthritis (all forms), facial rejuvenation, menopause, menstruation, infertility, pregnancy, post-partum, addictions, injuries, pain, numbness, paralysis, hair loss, hormone/adrenal imbalances, backaches, sciatica, digestion, weight loss/gain, fatigue, depression, anxiety, and skin problems.
