What is Acupuncture?

 

Acupuncture improves the body's functions and promotes the natural self-healing process by stimulating points on the body. Energy, called "Qi" (pronounced "chee") flows along specific pathways, called meridians, throughout the body. This constant flow of energy keeps our body balanced. However, if the flow of energy gets blocked, or disrupted it can lead to pain, lack of function, or illness.

 

Acupuncture can help release blocked Qi in the body and stimulate function, evoking the body’s natural healing response through various physiological systems. Modern research has demonstrated acupuncture’s effects on the nervous system, endocrine and immune systems, cardiovascular system, and digestive system. By stimulating the body’s various systems, acupuncture can help with various aliments and improve overall sense of well-being.
