awaken the body’s remarkable ability to heal
Acupuncture is a system of medicine originating in China, that has been practiced for several thousand years. Qi (chi), or vital life energy, flows throughout the body along meridians which are like highways. Anywhere that Qi flow has been disrupted due to an injury or other dysfunction results in a blockage or stagnation of Qi. This lack of free flow results in pain or illness. Acupuncture needles are used to prick the skin at different points that run along the meridians. This stimulation results in restoration of normal flow of Qi. The ultimate goal of acupuncture is to awaken the body’s remarkable ability to heal and return to a state of homeostasis.
safe, gentle, and effective
People often find themselves seeking acupuncture when they are at the end of their rope, after trying a myriad of other medical interventions that have not helped them. Others have been encouraged by family or friends or their doctor/practitioner to try it. Some have read about a study confirming the positive effects of acupuncture and are curious. Whatever the reason one is considering acupuncture the most important things to know is that acupuncture is that it is a safe, gentle, and effective way to help deal with many common ailments. Side effects are minimal, if any are experienced. Most important of all, it gets to the root of whatever problem or issue you may be having, rather than treating just the symptom.
