Through the use of fine needles, acupuncture is a method of encouraging the body to heal itself. This method is thousands of years old and activates the body’s vital energy (Qi) resulting in improved overall function and well-being.
The classical Chinese explanation of acupuncture is that channels of energy, known as meridians, flow through the body and over its surface nourishing the tissues. An obstruction in this movement can result in ill health and disease.
The meridians can be unblocked by needling the acupuncture points. Health is maintained as long as there is an abundant supply of free flowing Qi.
