Acupuncture is based on the concept of qi (“chi”.) Qi is the body’s own unique energy, or life force. Qi circulates throughout the body within meridians, also known as energy pathways. When the body is healthy, qi flows smoothly and freely through the meridians. However, if qi flow becomes disrupted, then illness may take root. We use painless needles inserted at certain acupoints along the meridians to restore proper balance and harmony to the patient.
TCM and Acupuncture have been used successfully in the treatment of many health conditions. These include: digestive disorders, back pain, headache, sleep disorders, menstrual disorders, stress and depression, hormonal imbalances, skin conditions, immune system dysfunction, cardiovascular disease, fertility issues, and many more. In fact, the World Health Organization (WHO) has now endorsed acupuncture in the treatment of over 40 health conditions.
