Acupuncture has been promoting healing and well-being through balance of the body's energy or life force, also known as chi or qi, for centuries.
The view of eastern medicine is that our chi flows along channels, also known as meridians, which, when blocked, are the cause of illness or disease. Unblocking chi through the stimulation of points along these energy channels is known as acupuncture. In essence, acupuncture teaches your body to heal itself.
Acupuncture is safe, effective and is free from side effects when practiced by a trained, licensed professional.
Because acupuncture is a symptom of being out of balance, many ailments, from physical pain to emotional pain such as anxiety, as well as a multitude of diseases are treatable with acupuncture.
