A traditional Chinese therapy that stimulates the body’s energy flow, acupuncture involves the placement of fine needles into specific anatomical points of the body. Stimulating these points encourages the body’s release of endorphins and pain-relieving neurohormones, making acupuncture ideal for pain relief, increasing energy and enhancing mood.
At the core of this ancient medicine is the philosophy that Qi (pronounced “chee”), or vital energy, flows throughout the body. Qi animates the body and protects it from illness, pain and disease. A person’s health is influenced by the quality, quantity and balance of Qi. Physical and emotional trauma, stress, lack of exercise, overexertion, seasonal changes, poor diet, accidents, or excessive activity are among the many things that can influence the quality, quantity and balance of Qi.
Practitioners of traditional Chinese medicine believe the optimal balance and flow of Qi energy is crucial to maintaining health and wellness, and should flow smoothly throughout the body’s network of pathways. If the flow of Qi is inhibited, the individual is at a higher risk for illness, fatigue or chronic pain.
Because of its relatively low cost and its non-invasive nature, acupuncture has become a highly popular form of complementary health care. Each treatment is designed uniquely to address symptoms as experienced by each individual.
