ABOUT ACUPUNCTURE SERVICES:
Acupuncture is an ancient healing technique that has been practiced for over 5,000 years in China. It is based on the concept of universal life energy called Qi (“chee”) present in every living creature. This energy is said to circulate throughout the body along specific pathways that are called meridians. As long as this energy flows freely throughout the meridians, health is maintained, but once the flow of energy is blocked, the system is disrupted and pain and illness occur, much like an electrical grid short-circuiting that causes blackouts. Acupuncture works to “re-program” and restore normal function by stimulating certain points on the meridians in order to free up the Qi energy. Acupuncturists commonly use very small thin needles to stimulate meridian points, in addition moxabustion (heat), fire cupping and gentle electric stimulation may also be used in treatment.
Acupuncture is used to treat virtually any condition from the common cold to more severe, chronic conditions. We invite you to make an appointment to see how acupuncture can improve your health.
