Acupuncture theory recognizes special pathways in the body called “meridians” through which this energy circulates. Traditional Chinese medicine views disease as the result of an imbalance or blockage in the body’s natural energy flow. Such imbalances can manifest in physical, emotional, and stress-related disorders. In our practice we use Acupuncture as a way to unblock or influence Qi and help it flow back into balance.
Acupuncture is performed by placing very thin needles into your skin at certain points and leaving them there for a short while as you rest. This is done to influence the energy flow. For most people, the effect is nearly painless and most often instills a sense of peace and tranquility.
