Acupuncture stimulates the balance and flow of Qi (pronounced chee) energy that in Traditional Chinese Medicine is considered essential to health. When the body is healthy Qi flows smoothly through the meridians that make up a conceptual network of pathways throughout the entire body. When the balance or flow of Qi is deficient or obstructed it may be diseased or susceptible to illness. Acupuncture treats both the symptoms and the root causes of the patient’s illness.
In North America, acupuncture is often used when western medicine has failed. In western medicine, the yin/yang balance it achieves is known as homeostasis.
Acupuncture is an ancient, safe and effective alternative to medication and, in some cases, surgery. Acupuncture stimulates the release of endorphins, the body’s natural pain-relieving neurohormones, through the insertion of needles into specific anatomical points (acupuncture points) to encourage natural healing.
Therapeutic effects include:
- Pain relief
- Increased energy
