Acupuncture

Acupuncture consists of stimulating the body’s energy by the insertion of extremely thin, hair like needles into designated points on the skin.  The Chinese believe that there is a universal life energy called Chi or Qi present in every living creature.  This energy circulates throughout the body along specific pathways called meridians.  As long as this energy flows freely, health is maintained, but once the flow of energy is blocked, the system is disrupted and pain and illness occur.  Acupuncture works to “re-program” and restore the body to its natural state of health.

Acupuncture is effective for many conditions and the World Health organization recognizes acupuncture's effectiveness for over 40 common disorders including disorders of the ear, nose & throat, respiratory system, gastrointestinal system, circulatory system, urogenital, gynecological, musculoskeletal, psychoemotional, neurological, and chronic pain.  Research has shown that acupuncture is a helpful treatment for all imbalances in the body and is most effective when combined with herbs.
