Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese medicine practice that has benefited people for thousands of years. It is rooted in the idea that an ever-present energy, Qi, flows throughout the body. When we are well, Qi flows freely along the body’s energy superhighways called meridians, and our body systems work in harmony. It is when Qi becomes disrupted by illness, injury, or imbalances we use acupuncture to return the body to it’s healthful, balanced state.
Acupuncture is performed by inserting thin needles into very specific points on the body to unblock any obstructions and rebalance the flow of Qi. It works by releasing the body’s natural pain-relieving chemicals and stimulating it’s self-healing response. Patients leave treatment feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.
