What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is traditional medicine originating over 2500 years ago in China. QI energy, often referred to as “life force”, or “energy flow”, is considered essential to health in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Acupuncture helps balance the flow of QI energy, allowing it to pour smoothly through the pathways in your body. Any obstructions within your QI energy network can cause you to be susceptible to illness.
By inserting needles into specific anatomical points, your doctor can stimulate the release of endorphins, encouraging healing and cleaning your energy pathways. Keeping a healthy flow of QI energy throughout your body with regular acupuncture treatments helps your body heal and maintain your overall health.
