Acupuncture is the insertion of sterilized, disposable needles into the body at points which have been proven to affect the treatment of disorders. Central to the practice of Acupuncture is the concept of Qi (pronounced “chee”) – the basic life force or energy.
Qi flows through the body in pathways called meridians, vitalizing tissues and maintaining the body’s complex systems of defense and regeneration. Good health is dependent upon the balanced and unimpeded flow of Qi. There are 361 main points located along 14 major meridians that can be stimulated to enhance the flow of Qi. When needles are inserted into these acupoints, they help to correct and rebalance the flow of Qi, relieve pain, and restore health.
