What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is an ancient chinese therapy based on the understanding that the body is composed of life energy (Chi or Qi) which travels through channels. (energy superhighways).  Health is achieved by stimulating these channels so energy can flow unobstructed. These channels can also be stimulated by special exercises such as taiji, qigong, or meditation.

In the clinic, this is achieved by acupressure, massage, light, heat, magnet, medical qigong, or acupuncture. Acupuncture procedure includes the use of fine thin sterile disposable needle to gently stimulate specific acupuncture points along the channels. Channels and points all have specific functions and when not working correctly disharmonies will follow. By careful evaluation of the channels’ health status, a trained acupuncturist is able to trace signs and symptoms back to specific pattern of disharmonies. Once reaching a diagnoses, a customized selection of acupuncture points are selected. This point prescription is then stimulated by different means as mentioned above: acupressure, massage, light, heat, magnet, medical qigong, or acupuncture.
