WHAT IS ACUPUNCTURE?

Acupuncture is a safe and effective medicine that addresses symptoms from the viewpoint of overall balance. It is a very effective system that sees a person from a wholistic viewpoint of body, mind and spirit.

Yin and Yang is the most common description of opposites and how they find balance within their relationship to one another. In Chinese Medicine, this is one way that we define good health. When these forces are not in balance, then the energy (qi), becomes stagnant and can get stuck, causing inconsistent flow within the meridians.

A meridian is basically the pathway that the qi moves through. These meridians should be free flowing. When there is a restriction of some kind, this can create a blockage, which then needs to be removed.

Through normal life experience, we may develop blockages in one or more of these meridians that can disturb the flow of qi.  Blockages can occur from emotional distress,  depression, anxiety and insomnia or physical trauma such as a running injury or a fall. 

After a brief diagnosis within each session, the practitioner determines which meridian(s) are affected and then inserts acupuncture needles into points on the meridians, which then opens the flow to move smoothly, thereby allowing any symptoms to subside. This process will eventually help allow the body to resume the movement of qi effectively and naturally by bringing the body back to function normally on its own.
